Australia imposes more sanctions on Russia

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has condemned the "brutal" and "unprovoked" Russian invasion of Ukraine and announced another tranche of sanctions, Qazet.az informs via 7News.

A further 25 Russians, including army commanders, deputy defense ministers and mercenaries responsible for the attacks will be sanctioned as will four additional financial institutions.

"We must ensure there is a cost for this violent, unacceptable, and egregious behaviour," Scott Morrison said.

"There will be further waves of sanctions as we identify those responsible for these egregious acts, including moving on over 300 members of the Russian parliament."

The Australian prime minister denounced "unilateral, hostile actions" by the Kremlin as he addressed reporters in Sydney hours after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a special military operation in Ukraine's Donbas region.
