EU leaders are reportedly planning to place Vladimir Putin’s daughters on its latest sanction hit-list in its latest crackdown on Moscow in the wake of alleged war crimes in Ukraine.

Katerina Tikhonova, 35, and Mariya Vorontsova, 36, are on the EU’s latest draft list of targets that includes oligarchs, politicians and those said to be within Putin’s inner circle.

Though, not much is known about their personal lives but Tikhonova, a scientist and former acrobat, and Vorontosva, an endocrinologist, are expected to be subject to asset freezes and travel bans across the continent from Wednesday.

It is unclear if the pair have holdings outside of Russia, any potential life of luxury they could have led in Europe is now likely to be a distant dream.

It comes as the G7, EU and United States are said to have agreed on a ban on ‘all new investment’ in Russia as part of its latest economic retaliation against Putin.
