The government has announced the strongest set of economic sanctions ever imposed against a major economy, to help cripple Putin’s war machine. These measures have been implemented in coordination with our international allies and include a comprehensive set of actions targeting imports on a range of Russian military, energy-sector and revenue generating goods.

Such measures include the prohibition of all imports consigned from or originating in non-government controlled Ukrainian territory. This means that even if the immediate location the goods were shipped from was not non-government controlled Ukrainian territory, the prohibition would still apply.
