The Russian government has expanded sanctions against Ukraine. A resolution to this effect was published on the portal of legal information.
The Russian government has expanded the list of Ukrainian companies against which economic measures are imposed. In the initial version of the document, the list of legal entities subject to special economic measures consisted of 68 companies. The latest document increased the number to 84.
On 28 January, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy enacted the decision of the National Security and Defence Council (NSDC) on sanctions against legal entities and individuals from Russia. Implementation of the decision of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine will be monitored by the secretary of the agency.
At the end of August 2018, Kiev prepared a new package of anti-Russian sanctions. The reason for the expansion of restrictive measures was the construction of the Crimean bridge. The list included 19 legal entities involved in the construction of the bridge across the Kerch Strait. In response, Moscow seriously expanded the list of personal sanctions to 322 Ukrainian citizens and 68 companies.
