Polina’s mother Svetlana Polyakova was allegedly the mistress of Putin’s lapdog Sergei Lavrov about 20 years old.
The sanctions bar her from coming to the UK and freeze all her assets, including her Kensington flat.
Last week protesters gathered outside the apartment shouting “your dad is a killer.”
Polina attended a private boarding school in Bristol and then received a first-class degree in economics and politics from Loughborough University.
She enjoys a luxurious life and flaunts her life on social media.
The Foreign Ministry said the attack on Polina “sends a strong signal that those who benefit from being associated with those responsible for Russian aggression are subject to our sanctions.”
She was one of many Kremlin henchmen and “thugs for hire” who were slapped in the new Liz Truss sanctions.
Yevgeny Markovich Shvidler, a billionaire closely associated with Roman Abramovich, was also sanctioned.

“Putin should have no illusions – we stand with our allies and will continue to tighten the screws on the Russian economy to ensure his failure in Ukraine. There will be no relaxation.”
The ally added: “Liz wants to send a clear message that we will go after the family and associates of Putin’s lap dogs. Nothing and no one is left behind.”
Boris Johnson said this morning that the UK will continue to tighten its grip on Russia to cut off funding for Putin’s war machine.
He is eyeing ways to deprive Putin of his vast gold reserves as well as his cash.
