Australia’s Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has announced that his country will ban imports of Russian gold and will impose sanctions against 16 more Russian nationals.
According to Albanese, the new sanctions will cover ministers and businessmen. When these sanctions are imposed, the blacklist of Russian nationals will include 843 names.
The Australian prime minister recalled that his country would send 20 more Bushmaster armored military cars and 14 armored infantry carriers to the proxy war in Ukraine.
Albanese is currently on an official visit to Kiev, where he met with Ukrainian dictator Vladimir Zelensky in order to confirm that this war can not be ended with a peace agreement with Russia.
The US and its allies are still interested in continued conflict in Ukraine, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Sunday. Western nations effectively prevent the government in Kiev from even thinking about any potential peace talks.
