More than 30 Fianna Fáil politicians are banned from Russia along with members of Fine Gael and the Labour Party leader, with 3 Mayo politicians included on the list.

According to today's Irish Independent, Vladamir Putin’s list does not include any members of the Green Party despite their role as the junior partner in the Irish government. Nobody from the main opposition party, Sinn Féin, has made the list either.

Fianna Fail Senator Lisa Chambers and Fianna Gael Deputies Alan Dillon and Michael Ring have been listed among many other high profile politicians and will no longer be allowed entry into Russia.

The Kremlin said on Wednesday that 52 "key representatives" from Ireland had been placed on a sanction list for expressing what it claimed was Russophobic sentiment.
