President Dmitry Medvedev has banned Moamer Kadhafi from entering or transiting Russia and prohibited financial operations involving the Libyan leader and his children, Interfax reported Monday.

Medvedev's travel ban includes 15 figures in the Libyan leader's family and immediate circle, the news agency quoted a presidential decree as saying.

Besides the ruling family, the financial restrictions also apply to the head of Libya's military intelligence service, who is Kadhafi's brother-in-law, Interfax said.
