Tariffs will affect imports worth 900 million pounds (more than 5 billion PLN).
– The introduced tariffs are intended to deny Russia access to international finance, to punish supporters of Vladimir Putin and to exert maximum economic pressure on his regime. British Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak said.
Britain also prohibits the export of luxury goods to Russia. How The British newspaper “The Guardian” reports, The ban will likely include luxury cars, designer clothing and artwork.
Products subject to new British duties on imports from Russia are: iron, steel, fertilizer, wood, tires, rail containers, cement, copper, aluminum, silver, lead, beverages, alcohol (including vodka), glass, glassware, grain, oil, seeds, paper, cardboard, machinery, artwork, antiques, fur skins and faux fur Ships and white fish.
As the British government made clear, the choice of products subject to embargoes and tariffs was aimed at “hitting the Russian economy as hard as possible”, while minimizing the risk to the British economy.
