            Australia and Japan have just ratcheted up the pressure on Moscow.

Canberra has sanctioned Russian oligarchs Oleg Deripaska and Viktor Vekselberg, as well as 11 banks and government agencies.

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

Meanwhile, Tokyo has sanctioned 15 additional Russians and nine organisations, including Rosoboronexport, the state-owned armaments exporter.
