The Cabinet of Ministers of New Zealand has introduced another package of sanctions against the media manager and CEO of Channel One Konstantin Ernst and 23 other representatives of the Russian media because of the special operation in Ukraine. This was announced on December 12 by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the country, Nanaii Mahuty.

“Among them [граждан, против которых вводятся ограничения] includes representatives of the Russian media and news agencies, as well as the Minister of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media [Максут Шадаев]CEO First channel [Константин Эрнст] and key employees of the Russian media,” TASS quoted Makhuta as saying.

Currently, New Zealand has imposed asset freeze and entry into the country sanctions against more than 1.2 Belarusian and Russian citizens. As a result of economic restrictions against Russia bilateral trade between the two countries has virtually ceased.

Earlier it became known that the European Union wants to appoint former Ambassador to the United States David O’Sullivan to the post special representative on sanctions. The corresponding decision can be made as early as December 13.
