UK sanctions Russian media over disinformation – Times of India


LONDON: Britain has imposed sanctions on more than a dozen Russian media figures and organisations accused of spreading propaganda and disinformation about the war in Ukraine. The latest group subjected to asset freezes and travel bans includes Rossiya television anchor Sergey Brilev, who previously lived in the UK, Gazprom-Media chief executive Aleksandr Zharov and Alexey Nikolov, managing director of Kremlin-backed broadcaster RT.
Sanctions have also been slapped on media organisations TV-Novosti, which owns RT, and Rossiya Segodnya, which controls the Sputnik news agency. British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said Thursday’s sanctions would hit “the shameless propagandists who push out Putin‘s fake news and narratives.”
The UK also said it was sanctioning Colonel General Mikhail Mizintsev, chief of Russia‘s National Defence Command and Control Center, accusing him of orchestrating atrocities including the siege of Mariupol.
