On Wednesday, December 6, the United Kingdom will announce the imposition of a new package of sanctions against individuals and groups of foreign suppliers exporting military equipment and components to Russia, according to the British government.

The sanctions are aimed at depriving Vladimir Putin's regime of resources for producing weapons used in the illegal war in Ukraine.

"That is why we remain unwavering in our support of Ukraine. If we allow Putin’s aggression to succeed, it will embolden those who challenge democracy and threaten our way of life. We cannot let them prevail," said British Foreign Secretary David Cameron.

Aid from Great Britain to Ukraine

The United Kingdom has been one of Ukraine's key allies since the onset of Russia's full-scale invasion. For the years 2023-2024, the total amount of British humanitarian aid to Ukraine stands at £127 million.

On Wednesday, December 6, the British Foreign Secretary David Cameron will make an official visit to the United States. In anticipation of the visit, he announced a new winter humanitarian aid package for Ukraine, totaling £37 million.

Recently, Cameron stated that if the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin is not stopped in Ukraine, he will return for more.

Britain's sanctions against Russia

In early November, the United Kingdom imposed sanctions against 29 individuals and entities in the gold and oil sectors of Russia. The new lists targeted not only Russian oligarchs and businessmen but also collaborators from third countries who contribute to the military income of the aggressor.

In September, the British government implemented sanctions against officials of Russian occupying administrations in the Zaporizhzhia, Kherson, Luhansk, and Donetsk regions, as well as in Crimea. Their assets will be frozen, and entry will be prohibited.
