Australia will introduce a new package of sanctions against Russia: Officials, banks and companies on the list
Australia will impose new sanctions against the terrorist state of Russia. The list of restrictions will include Russian companies "Severstal", "Rosneft" and "Polyus".
This was announced by Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, speaking today, May 19, in Hiroshima (Japan) on the eve of the G7 summit, The Guardian reports. The sanctions also include a ban on the export of equipment to the regions of Ukraine temporarily occupied by the aggressor country.
In total, Australia will impose sanctions against 21 legal entities and 3 individuals. Subsidiaries of the Russian corporation Rosatom engaged in nuclear research, infrastructure development and weapons production are also on the sanctions list.
Restrictions were also imposed on unnamed defence organisations that support the war against Ukraine. As well as 5 Russian banks operating in Russia.
"Australia supports Ukraine. We pay tribute to the unwavering resilience and courage shown by the Ukrainian people. Australia once again calls on Russia to end its illegal and immoral war against the people of Ukraine. We will continue to work with the G7 and international partners to address the global impact of Russia's invasion. This includes food and energy security, which is a serious problem for our own region," Mirage quoted Albanese as saying.
