The Prime Minister has announced the largest and most severe package of economic sanctions Russia has ever seen. This has included sanctions on the export of high-tech and other goods critical to Russia's strategic interests. We continue to consider further import and export measures against Russia that will constrain Russia's ability to sustain its aggression against Ukraine. We are in regular dialogue with our partners on the measures that would have most impact.
