UK PM Boris Johnson Expected to Announce Sanctions Against Russia

On Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed recognition of the republics of Donbass and urged Kiev to cease the escalation there, also ordering to deploy a peacekeeping mission to the region to stop the confrontation.

The head of the cabinet is expected to announce British sanctions against Russia after Moscow officially recognised the independence of the Lugansk People's Republic (LPR) and the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR)
Johnson previously claimed that Putin has now "violated Ukrainian sovereignty by sending troops in" and promised that the UK's sanctions will "hit Russia very hard".
