New Zealand announced further sanctions against Russia, targeting 170 senators in the Russian parliament, and the Federation Council, as well as six companies in the defense sector.

"While Russian President Vladimir Putin's war machine continues its illegal attacks and as more revelations of atrocities emerging, we are determined to impose costs on those involved," New Zealand Foreign Minister (FM) Nanaia Mahuta said.

"We support the people of Ukraine and are committed to holding President Putin and his group of war instigators accountable," Mahuta added.
