Bloomberg: Russia said it was retaliating against U.K. sanctions on its top officials with entry bans on Prime Minister Boris Johnson and much of his cabinet.

The move — largely symbolic as Western officials have all but stopped traveling to Russia since the war broke out — covers a dozen others, including Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, Defense Minister Ben Wallace and former Prime Minister Theresa May, the Foreign Ministry said. The list will soon be expanded to include politicians and members of parliament Moscow blames for “fueling anti-Russian hysteria,” it added.

The U.K. has been among the most assertive Western countries in imposing sanctions on Russia and supplying weapons to Ukraine.
