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

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

He said it looks like the Russian Embassy “has been 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 be bent to the use of political leader Vladimir Putin,” he told Sky News presenter Chris Smith.

“And here he tried to argue that if Australia can sanction the Russians, well, the Russians can sanction the Australians.”
