U.K. Foreign Secretary James Cleverly announced on July 17 new sanctions against Russia over the attempts to destroy Ukrainian national identity and the abduction of Ukrainian children.

London confirmed 14 new sanctions, including 11 against those who participate in the abductions such as Ksenia Mishonova, Commissioner for Children's Rights in Moscow Oblast, or Education Minister Sergey Kravtsov.

The British sanctions list is also expanded by two Russian propagandists for spreading anti-Ukrainian sentiments, including former Russia Today (RT) presenter Anton Krasovsky.

On Oct. 20, 2022, Krasovsky called for the murder of Ukrainian children, saying they should be "thrown into a river with a rapid current." He was suspended from his position at RT soon after.

London announced that the sanctioned Russian officials are to face asset freezes and travel bans.

According to the Ukrainian portal Children of War, Russia has abducted or forcibly moved 19,493 Ukrainian children since the beginning of the full-scale invasion.

Many of them are forced to undergo "Russian patriotic re-education" and are assigned to Russian adoptive and foster families.
