November 25, 2022 | 0 Comments

“Neither this nor any other measure will deter us or our partners – including the Overseas Territories – from our steadfast support of Ukraine,” Parliamentary Under-Secretary [Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office] Leo Docherty said.

During the British Parliament’s session on November 23rd, Conservative MP Andrew Rosindell — who has visited Bermuda before — asked the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, “what assessment he has made of the decision by the Russian Federation to include all British Overseas Territories on a so-called unfriendly list; and if he will make a statement.”

In response, Parliamentary Under-Secretary [Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office] Leo Docherty said, “International sanctions are having a significant impact on Putin’s war machine. The Russian Federation has introduced a range of retaliatory measures.

“British Overseas Territories have been added to a list of countries and territories who have committed “unfriendly actions” – a response to their support for sanctions. This places a number of restrictions on the operations and transactions of entities from these territories within Russia and with Russian firms.

“Neither this nor any other measure will deter us or our partners – including the Overseas Territories – from our steadfast support of Ukraine.”
