Russia's Foreign Ministry made the announcement today. According to a statement issued by the Foreign Office, 29 journalists and commentators in the British media have been barred from entering Russia for misrepresenting Russia's actions in Ukraine.

Those barred representatives from the BBC, The Times, and The Guardian. In addition, 20 people from Britain's defense sector have been barred from entering Russia. These individuals include the Chief of Naval Staff, the Deputy Minister of Defense, and the heads of companies manufacturing defense equipment.
