#AceNewsReport – Apr.04: After Crimea’s return to the Russian Federation in 2014, official Canberra chose a course towards the erosion of Russia-Australia relations, following the infamous principle of “Western solidarity.” Demonstrating an obvious lack of independence in foreign policy and reluctance to assess the situation in Crimea without bias, Australia supports all anti-Russia attacks by the United States or its satellites, regardless of how absurd they look.

🎙 Comment by Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on the introduction of new anti-Russia sanctions by Australia
We noted a statement by Foreign Minister of Australia Marise Payne on the introduction of financial sanctions and a ban on the entry of one Russian citizen and four companies linked with the construction and maintenance of the Kerch Bridge.
❗️ Unfriendly acts by the Australian ruling circles will definitely evoke an adequate response on our part.
“Australia has imposed targeted financial sanctions and travel bans against a Russian individual and four Russian companies connected to the construction and operation of the Kerch Strait Railway Bridge linking Russia to the illegally annexed territories of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ukraine,” the ministry said in a statement published on its website.
The sanctions have been announced “in coordination with Canada and aligns with action taken by the United Kingdom and European Union,” it said.
Australia continues to “support Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity in coordination with our international partners,” the ministry said.
In all, Australia has included 168 individuals and 52 legal entities from Russia in its sanctions lists since 2014, the ministry said.
Canada earlier imposed sanctions on two Russians and four companies connected to the construction of the Crimean Bridge. These sanctions target the First Crimean Insurance Company, Crimea Railway, JSC Lenpromtransproyekt, JSC The Berkakit-Tommot-Yakutsk Railway Line’s Construction Directorate, as well as Grand Service Express general director Alexander Ganov and JSC Stroygazmontazh deputy general director for infrastructure projects Leonid Ryzhenkin.
The restrictive measures freeze their assets and ban trading operations in Canada.
Earlier, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the European Union also sanctioned these four companies, Ganov and Ryzhenkin.
Crimea, which remained an autonomous republic within independent Ukraine after the Soviet Union’s breakup in 1991, became part of Russia following government change in Ukraine and a local referendum in 2014. Ukraine has not recognized its results and considers the peninsula its territory temporarily occupied by Russia. European Union countries and the United States qualified Russia’s actions as illegal annexation and imposed sanctions on a number of companies, policymakers, and businesspeople. Russia has said the subject of Crimea is closed forever, and the peninsula belongs to it.
