The UK will impose visa and financial sanctions on two Russian military intelligence officers (GRU) and one of its units responsible for cyber-attacks on the German Parliament in 2015, the British foreign office said on Thursday.
According to the Ministry, the sanctions, which will take effect immediately, are imposed within the European regime’s framework.
“The UK, together with Germany and our European partners, seeks to bring Russia to responsibility for cyberattacks aimed at undermining Western democracies, – reads the statement of the Foreign Minister Dominic Raab. “Such criminal behavior adds to the Russian government’s notoriety.”
