Britain sanctions Russian media.

Britain announced sanctions on 14 more Russian entities and figures, including state media organisations behind RT and Sputnik on the premises that they were targeting those who push out President Vladimir Putin’s “fake news and narratives”. Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said in a statement: “Putin’s war on Ukraine is based on a torrent of lies.” Britain is acting jointly with its Western allies to punish Russia for its invasion of Ukraine, and has already sanctioned more than 1,000 individuals and businesses.Among the recently sanctioned were RT’s managing director, Alexey Nikolov, Sergey Brilev, a prominent news anchor at the state-owned Rossiya Television and Radio network, and Sputnik Editor-in-Chief Anton Anisimov.
