Russia has denied entry to 29 British journalists and 20 individuals associated with the UK defense complex. This was reported on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.

This decision was made due to the UK’s personal sanctions against Russian journalists and heads of companies in the domestic defense complex.

The Foreign Ministry said that the journalists included in the list were involved in “deliberate dissemination of false and one-sided information about Russia and events in Ukraine and Donbass.” With their biased assessments, they contribute to inciting Russophobia in British society, Moscow is sure. Entry is denied to employees and correspondents of the Guardian, Sky News, Times, BBC and other major British publications.

Persons associated with the defense complex of Great Britain are involved in making decisions on the supply of weapons to Ukraine, which are used by “local punishers and Nazi formations” to kill civilians and destroy civilian infrastructure, the Russian Foreign Ministry noted.

At the end of May, Moscow, in response to British personal sanctions against the majority of members of the Federation Council, banned 154 members of the House of Lords of the United Kingdom Parliament from entering the Russian Federation.
