The blacklisted are British politicians, journalists and business people, including former Prime Minister David Cameron, because they "promote London's hostile policy aimed at demonising Russia and isolating it internationally," the ministry said.

Moscow could impose restrictions on more British nationals as London attempts to continue anti-Russian sanctions, it warned.
