Prime Minister Boris Johnson and a dozen other senior British politicians have been banned from Russia.
The embargo is in retaliation for sanctions imposed during the 51 day war in Ukraine.
Mr Johnson – who was last in Russia in 2017 as Foreign Secretary – is joined by Priti Patel, Rishi Sunak, Nicola Sturgeon, Dominic Raab, Liz Truss, Ben Wallace, Grant Shapps, Kwasi Kwarteng, Nadine Dorries, James Heappey, Suella Braverman and Theresa May.
The Russian Foreign Ministry said the decision was taken because Britain had tried to isolate the country.
It also accused the UK cabinet of trying to “strangle” Russia’s economy.
A Kremlin statement said:
“This step was taken as a response to London’s unbridled information and political campaign aimed at isolating Russia internationally, creating conditions for restricting our country and strangling the domestic economy.
“The British leadership is deliberately aggravating the situation surrounding Ukraine, pumping the Kyiv regime with lethal weapons and co-ordinating similar efforts on the behalf of NATO.”
Ms Truss, the foreign secretary, said this week:
“We are tightening the ratchet on Putin’s war machine and targeting the circle of people closest to the Kremlin.
“We will keep going with sanctions until Putin fails in Ukraine.
“Nothing and no one are off the table.”
