The government has lifted all tariffs on goods from Ukraine, part of broad UK economic support, including £1bn in loan guarantees.
Imposed on Russia is a new export ban on products and technology that “could be used to repress the people of Ukraine”. That “could include interception and monitoring equipment”. Import bans have been imposed on silver, wood products and high-end products from Russia such as caviar.
The UK will also increase tariffs on around £130m worth of products from Russia and Belarus, including diamonds and rubber.
