Russia sanctions more Australians including ABC, Nine journalists


Russia’s foreign ministry has announced it is sanctioning an additional 121 Australian citizens, including journalists and defence officials.

The move cited Australia’s “Russophobic agenda”.

Journalists from ABC News, The Sydney Morning Herald and Sky News were among the newly sanctioned, as well as several defence officials.

Russia announced a similar move against dozens of British journalists on Tuesday.

More to come.
