UK NewsPMQs today: Boris Johnson reacts to Putin banning UK MPs from Russia: Vladimir Putin today slapped sanctions on 287 British politicians in tit-for-tat punishment over the UK’s decision to take action against hundreds of Russian politicians last month. However, the Kremlin faced immediate embarrassment as it was highlighted how many on the list were no longer actually MPs and so do not sit in the House of Commons. This included ex-Tory Cabinet ministers Justine Greening and Dominic Grieve. Boris Johnson said – although he did not want to ‘disrespect’ those British politicians who hadn’t been sanctioned – that ‘all those 287 should regard it as a badge of honour’.
