Peter Jennings ‘pleased’ to be on Russia’s sanction list

Former ASPI Executive Director Peter Jennings says he is “pleased” to be on Russia’s sanction list as he continues to be “critical of the Russian regime”.

He said it looks like the Russian Embassy “was given 45 minutes to put together a list”.

“It just goes to show how in an authoritarian system like Russia, the legal system, the police and everything else can just be bent to the use of the political leader Vladimir Putin,” he told Sky News host Chris Smith.

“And here he has tried to make a point if Australia can sanction Russians, well Russians can sanction Australians.”
