Russia prepares sanctions against Ukraine

The draft resolution on anti-Ukrainian sanctions is almost complete, TASS reports citing a source in the Russian government. The document concerns 360 companies and more than 50 individuals.

“Shortly this document will be submitted for the Prime Minister’s signature, and after the signing, it will be published,” he said.

The report does not specify which companies and individuals are listed in the draft resolution. However, according to the interlocutor, “there will be many interesting discoveries for the citizens of Ukraine, who will see that some of their leaders hold radical views, including towards the relations between the two countries and nations, as well as their environment, and are not averse to making money from these relationships. "

On October 22, 2018, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered to impose anti-Ukrainian sanctions. After that, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that Russia will limit Ukrainian goods import, and will block assets of some Ukrainians who cause "harm" to the Kremlin.

In May, 2018, Ukraine introduced sanctions against Russian companies and individuals.

During the meeting of the NSDC on May 2, it was decided to bring Ukrainian sanctions against Russia in line with the decisions of the United States and European Union governments.

Ukraine’s Cabinet of Ministers, Security Service, and National Bank initiated the introduction of new sanctions against individuals and legal entities involved in Russian aggression against Ukraine. The sanctions target individuals who prepared and facilitated voting during the Russian presidential elections in annexed Crimea.

Additionally, the sanctions effect representatives of the Russian administration in the Crimea, militants of Russian armed groups in the annexed territory of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, and individuals involved in cyber-aggression against Ukraine and those who commit unlawful actions against Ukrainian citizens illegally held in Russia. Deputies of the State Duma and members of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly are also included on the list. The sanctions imposed in previous years have been extended; the new sanctions will last for three years or, in some cases, an indefinite term.
