Jonathan Djanogly asks the PM about further UK and EU sanctions against Russia


5th September 2018

Following the Prime Minister’s statement on the Salisbury nerve agent attack, Jonathan Djanogly welcomes the increase of United States sanctions against Russia and asks if the UK and EU are intending to do the same.

Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con)
As my right hon. Friend pointed out earlier, during the summer the United States increased its sanctions against Russia specifically as a result of this heinous crime. To what extent are we intending to replicate the sanctions that the US has put in place? Are we are intending to get our EU allies to do the same?

The Prime Minister
Obviously, we have worked closely with our EU allies and others in relation to sanctions on Russia, for which there are various reasons at the moment due to the various aspects of malign state activity. I have referenced the chemical weapons sanctions regime that the EU has agreed in principle, and we will be working with our allies on that. Of course, after 29 March next year, we will have our own sanctions powers in place as an independent state, but we will want to continue to work with allies and others on that.
