Among those listed are also Irish Foreign and Defence Minister Simon Coveney and Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe as well as a number of other key officials and lawmakers.

The Russian foreign ministry said the measures against the 52 figures were taken following Ireland’s support of EU sanctions against Russia.

“Acting under orders from Brussels, Ireland is conducting an aggressive anti-Russian propaganda campaign,” said a foreign ministry statement.

The statement said Ireland has been seeking to curtail bilateral cooperation with Moscow.

Western capitals have slapped Russia with a slew of unprecedented sanctions over its offensive in pro-Western Ukraine.
