Britain has frozen assets owned by Russian oligarchs, other individuals and entities sanctioned for Moscow's full-scale invasion of Ukraine that together account for $20.5 billion, the U.K. government wrote on Nov. 10.

"Our message is clear: We will not allow Putin to succeed in this brutal war," said the Economic Secretary to the Treasury, Andrew Griffith.
