Britain has imposed sanctions on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s ex – wife and another woman he considers his current girlfriend in connection with the invasion of Ukraine.

Lyudmila Oceretnaya, who married the Russian president until 2014, and former Olympic gymnast Alina Kabeva face a travel ban to the United Kingdom and the freezing of their assets there.

Britain has now added more than 1,000 to Russia’s sanctions list.

British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said Britain was “working to tighten the noose” on Putin’s “close circle”.
