UK Sanctions Putin Ally Accused of Mass Kidnap Of Ukrainian Children

Britain today slapped fresh sanctions on an ally of Vladimir Putin who has been accused of overseeing a mass kidnap of Ukrainian children.

Maria Lvova-Belova, who holds the role of Russia's 'Children's Rights Commissioner', is alleged to be involved in the forced abduction and adoption of Ukrainian children in Russia.

It has been claimed, during the course of Mr. Putin's invasion, that Ukrainian orphans are being taken from Russian-occupied areas of Ukraine with plans to make them Russian citizens.

Ukraine has accused Russia of deporting more than 232,000 children to its territory, with more than 2,000 of them orphaned or separated from their parents.

Kyiv has also hit out at moves by the Russian parliament to simplify the adoption of Ukrainian children by Russians.

The new British sanctions announced today by Foreign Secretary Liz Truss also target Patriarch Kirill, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church.

He has been a long-time ally of Mr. Putin and become one of the most prominent supporters of Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Ms Truss has also targeted arms dealers who supply Myanmar's military junta.
