SYDNEY, June 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Australia has imposed sanctions against 50 Russian officials and 11 companies over the situation in Ukraine, the Australian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Thursday.

Among the citizens on the list are Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, Federation Council Chairwoman Valentina Matviyenko and State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin.

 

Australia's sanctions against Russia

On May 21, Australia’s Minister for Foreign Affairs Julie Bishop announced expanding sanctions on 38 individuals and 11 legal entities from Russia and Ukraine. On March 19, Australia imposed similar penalties on 12 Russian and Ukrainian citizens.

The Australian minister said the new sanctions reaffirm “a clear and unequivocal support for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine”.

Bishop’s statement says Australia continues urging Russia to fulfill its international liabilities, including the duties of permanent UN SC member, in maintaining international peace and security.

A source in Australia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs told ITAR-TASS that the list of sanctioned people, who were banned from entering the country, will not be published, and the names would be announced only after the legislative act stipulating the rules of introducing sanctions is amended.
