Statement on the ISC report on Russia

In response to the ISC report on Russia, Ava Lee, Campaign Leader on Threats to Democracy, said:

“The ISC report comes after years of troubling news stories about Russian interference in the UK’s political system. We know dark money continues to seep into Westminster despite promises to reform offshore tax havens that are used to disguise this.

“It’s time the British government stopped rolling out the red carpet to the Russian oligarchs doing Putin’s bidding in the UK. That means introducing transparency measures to stop companies being set up anonymously and ensuring property in the UK is not being bought by unknown owners.”
