Britain is going to announce new sanctions against Russia

“The Foreign Office is expected to announce a tougher sanctions regime in Parliament on Monday so that Britain can target Russia’s strategic and financial interest”, –  the source said.

The source added that Prime Minister Boris Johnson discussed diplomatic tactics and sanctions options with Foreign Minister Liz Truss last week before briefing the cabinet on the situation and the government’s next steps
