Shailesh Vara MP’s response to being put on Russia’s banned list

Following today’s announcement by Russia’s Foreign Ministry to ban 287 present and former members of the House of Commons, Shailesh Vara MP, who is on the list, said:

“I wasn't planning a visit to Russia but being put on their banned list will not deter me from speaking out against Russia's illegal invasion of Ukraine and its barbaric war crimes. The UK will continue to lead the way in its support for Ukraine, both with military equipment and humanitarian aid."
