Since the end of February, Canberra has repeatedly expanded the sanctions lists against Russia, in particular, the authorities have banned representatives of Russia's top leadership from visiting Australia. The sanctions also affected Putin, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, and Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. In early April, Australia approved sanctions against a number of “elites and oligarchs close to Putin.” Then the lists included the head of the Ministry of Economic Development Maxim Reshetnikov, the head of the National Center for Defense Control of Russia, Colonel General Mikhail Mizintsev and the Vice Speaker of the State Duma Alexander Babakov.

The Russian Foreign Ministry in mid-April banned the entry of 228 Australian citizens, including Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his deputy Barnaby Joyce. Then, in mid-June, restrictive measures were expanded— 121 more Australian citizens were added to the lists, for whom entry to Russia was closed on an indefinite basis. The Russian department then explained that they included in the list of heads of “power structures, businessmen, experts and journalists who form the Russophobic agenda.”
