Prime Minister of Australia Scott Morrison said in his new measures that Australia has announced sanctions against Russia.
Canberra will impose sanctions against the separatist-held pro-Moscow regions of Luhansk and Donetsk in eastern Ukraine. The sanctions target energy, oil, gas, transport, telecommunicatins and mineral reserves, Morrison said.
“The invasion of Ukraine has effectively already begun. Russia is at peak readiness to now complete a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, and that is likely to occur within the next 24 hours,” Morrison said.
