Russian authorities have sanctioned UK officials, historians, and academics terming them as Russophobic people 

Russia today on Monday imposed personal sanctions on 18 UK citizens including top British academics and officials. The reason given for this action by the Russian authorities against the people mentioned was their attempt to portray Russia as a threatening nation and encourage the Ukraine war. 

"We are forced to state that Russophobically charged British representatives do not shy away trying to discredit the constitutional system and socio-political processes in our country," Russia's foreign ministry said.

"The so-called brain trusts operating on the basis of the largest British and Western educational institutions make a significant contribution to the subversive work of London in the Russian direction."

Russia introduced personal sanctions against British Deputy Defence Minister James Cartlidge, Deputy National Security Adviser Sarah MacIntosh and Director of Submarines Simon Asquith.

Others targeted included Stuart Peach, the British prime minister's special envoy to the Western Balkans, as well as Lords Dan Hannan and Michael Ashcroft.

The academics sanctioned included historians Orlando Figes, Norman Davies, Timothy Garton Ash, Rob Johnson, David Abulafia, and experts including Roy Allison of Oxford, Graeme Robertson of the University of North Carolina, Calder Walton of Harvard, and James Sherr of the International Centre for Defence & Security in Tallinn.

In the recent times, there had been many attempts by the Russian government to minimize Western propaganda.
