The ban, although symbolic, is a reflection of the deteriorating relations between the UK and Russia
Russia has imposed a travel restriction on British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson and some top British top diplomats. Other officials, according to Russia state media include foreign secretary Liz Truss, defence secretary Ben Wallace and 10 other prominent politicians, mostly members of the Boris John-led cabinet.
