UK sanctions adult daughters of Vladimir Putin and Russian foreign minister

LONDON — The U.K. has sanctioned the adult daughters of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in a move coordinated with Western allies.

The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office Friday Putin’s daughters Katerina Vladimirovna Tikhonova and Maria Vladimirovna Vorontsova, and Lavrov’s daughter Yekaterina Sergeyevna Vinokurova to Britain’s list of individuals sanctioned over Russia’s lethal invasion of Ukraine.

All three will have their assets in the U.K. frozen and won’t be able to travel to Britain or do business with British citizens or companies.

The FCDO said the sanctions are another show of global unity against Russia’s aggression. The U.S. had hit all three with sanctions Wednesday.

“Our unprecedented package of sanctions is hitting the elite and their families, while degrading the Russian economy on a scale Russia hasn’t seen since the fall of the Soviet Union,” U.K. Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said, calling on allies to “do more” to cut off Putin’s sources of cash.
