Campaigners asked UK to sanction 1,000 names over Ukraine – Anna Bradshaw in Bloomberg

A host of third parties, including charities and private individuals, has asked the UK government to add around 1,000 names to its sanctions regime, Bloomberg reports.

The Foreign Office received 37 such requests between February 2022, when Russia invaded Ukraine, to June 2022, the department revealed last week after a freedom of information request.

However, as Anna Bradshaw told Bloomberg, the evidence put forward by those third parties in support of their claims can often be “haphazard” and it becomes a “kind of free for all”.
