British Transport Secretary Grant Shapps on Monday ordered all UK seaports to turn away Russian vessels, in response to the country’s invasion of Ukraine.

The banning order applied to “any ship which they have reason to believe is owned, controlled or operated by any person connected with Russia” or on a sanctions list, “flying the Russian flag; registered in Russia”, he tweeted.
