New Zealand authorities have expanded sanctions against Russia, including the companies SOGAZ and Russian Railways, according to the government website.
In addition, sanctions have been imposed against a number of Russian defense enterprises that are engaged in the “development, production and testing of military equipment for the Russian Armed Forces.”
The New Zealand Foreign Ministry recalled that the law on anti-Russian sanctions adopted by the authorities in March allows for “a wide range of measures, including travel bans, asset freezes, financial bans, and bans on ships and aircraft.”
“These measures also prohibit New Zealand citizens and companies from providing goods and services to the Russian Armed Forces and its defense organizations that are subject to these sanctions,” Foreign Minister Nanaya Mahuta said.
Since the end of February, New Zealand, following the European Union and the United States, has repeatedly imposed sanctions against Russia. It banned the entry of President Vladimir Putin, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, Foreign and Defense Ministers Sergei Lavrov and Sergei Shoigu, as well as Defense Ministry representative Igor Konashenkov and Chief of the Main Directorate of the General Staff Igor Kostyukov. The sanctions also include freezing assets, but, as Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova emphasized, “neither Putin nor Lavrov” there are no accounts abroad.
In addition, Wellington imposed a 35% tariff on imports from Russia, and also imposed restrictions on 18 financial institutions, including the Central Bank and the Russian Direct Investment Fund.

The Russian Foreign Ministry accused New Zealand of following the “Russophobic course” initiated by the “collective West”. As a response, Moscow added to the Russian “stop list” 132 New Zealand officials, including members of the government and parliament of the country, as well as a number of heads of municipal bodies, representatives of law enforcement agencies and journalists.
