Russia sanctions British PR executives and defence lobbyists

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's foreign ministry said on Wednesday it had introduced sanctions against the heads of 30 British public relations firms, as well as a number of defence lobbyists, in response to what it called unfriendly steps by the British government.

The individuals on the list are barred from entering Russia, the ministry said.
