Russia has imposed sanctions against officials, military and journalists from New Zealand in response to the restrictive measures taken by Wellington against Moscow, the press service of the Foreign Ministry reported. Sanctions are imposed on 32 people, they are prohibited from entering Russia.

“To the national” stop list ” an additional 32 New Zealanders from among the heads of municipal bodies, law enforcement agencies and journalists who form the Russophobic agenda in this country are added, — the ministry said in a statement.

New Zealand Deputy Defense Minister Mike Yadley, Mayors of Wellington Andrew Foster, Auckland Philip Goff, Christchurch Leanne Dalziel, The New Zealand Herald journalists Matthew Hooton and John Anthony, Dominion Post columnists Kate Greene and Josie Pagani, TV channel reporter TVNZ Wen Owen, as well as high-ranking New Zealand military officers and a number of city councilors.

New Zealand, following Western countries, began to impose sanctions against Russia because of the situation in Ukraine. Restrictive measures affected the top leadership, including Russian President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, the Central Bank, and the largest Russian banks, major businessmen and top managers.

In early April, New Zealand imposed a duty on all Russian imports at the level of 35%. This decision of the New Zealand authorities was called “the most significant economic response” countries to Russia's actions in Ukraine.

In response to New Zealand's sanctions, the Russian Foreign Ministry accused the country of following the “Russophobic course” initiated by the “collective West”, and also included in the Russian “stop list” 132 New Zealand officials, including members of the country's government and parliament.
