Ukraine Initiates Expansion of Sanctions Against Russia
17 December, 2019

The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine is planning to expand personal sanctions, connected to Russia’s armed aggression against Ukraine, according to a decree posted onto the government’s website. 

The decree states that over the course of a month, the government is expected to develop and submit to the National Security and Defense Council a list of new, personalized, economic sanctions against companies that supply Russia’s military-industrial complex. These sanctions are planned to have a duration of 3 years.

These new sanctions will be implemented against legal entities registered in Russia, as well as in the occupied territories.
