Russian Federation imposed sanctions on 25 British individuals, as an answer to restrictions rolled out by the United Kingdom earlier this year over the case of Sergei Magnitsky, a Russian tax auditor who died in police custody back in 2009.

In response to the unfriendly actions of the British authorities and on the basis of the principle of reciprocity, the Russian side made a decision to impose personal sanctions against 25 representatives of Britain who are barred from entering Russia,”

The announcement was made by the Russian Foreign Ministry on Saturday.

The sanctions against 25 Russian individuals, including the head of the Investigative Committee, Alexander Bastrykin, were rolled out by the Foreign Office in July.

The move, closely resembling the original 2012 US Magnitsky Act, barred the blacklisted Russians from entering the UK, while their British assets if they have any, were ordered to be seized.

The British individuals that will be sanctioned are yet to be named.
