How many Tory Party donors will be affected by these sanctions? 🤔

If we just look at the instances we know about, because they are in the open, such as appearances on RT News - Russian state-funded broadcaster 'Russia Today', that pays politicians up to £1,000 per hour  in appearance fees (no wonder they hate the BBC!) then it clearly isn't just Brexiter Tories and Nigel Farage that take Putin's cash. George Galloway and Alex Salmond have had their own shows.

I'm pretty sure RT News represents only a tiny fraction of Russia's total investment in propaganda and political influencing, and it isn't just brexiters, anti-vaxxers and separitists who benefit.

My conspiracy theory is that Russia has been undermining democracy by promoting the most idiotic, corrupt and destructive politicians and journalists they can find.

But what about the ones which aren't in the open?  How many MPs are in receipt of cash from Russian or pro-Russian sources to lobby on their behalf? 

Even with the known ones the Tory Cabinet seems to be heavily supported by Russian money
