Australia announces new sanctions on Russian elites following evidence of war crimes in Ukraine


Australia has issued fresh sanctions against 67 Russian nationals including oligarchs, soldiers and government officials following the country’s invasion of Ukraine. 

Foreign Minister Marise Payne announced the latest round of sanctions on Thursday from Brussels where she had been invited to speak at a meeting of NATO countries. 

The announcement is in response to evidence of war crimes committed by Russia in Bucha and other areas around the Ukrainian capital Kyiv.

There are now more than 600 people sanctioned by Australia.

The new round includes Russian military official Colonel-General Mikhail Mizintsev, who has been labelled the ‘Butcher of Mariupol’ for attacks in the city that targeted buildings sheltering civilians.
