Australia and Japan have just turned up the sanctions dial on Moscow.

Canberra added Russian billionaires Oleg Deripaska and Viktor Vekselberg, and 11 banks and government entities to its sanctions list.

“With our recent inclusion of the Central Bank of Russia, Australia has now targeted all Russian Government entities responsible for issuing and managing Russia’s sovereign debt,” foreign minister Marise Payne said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Tokyo has sanctioned 15 more Russians and nine organisations, including state-owned arms exporter Rosoboronexport.
