Russia sanctions 390 Ukrainian people and companies

Dmitry Medvedev PMYesterday, Russia added 322 individuals and 68 entities to its Ukraine sanctions list (asset freezes) in order to “counter Ukraine’s unfriendly actions towards Russian citizens and legal entities, to ensure that the restrictions imposed by Ukraine on Russian citizens and legal entities are lifted and to encourage the normalisation of bilateral relations”.

According to the press release, the list includes Judges on the Constitutional Court of Ukraine, deputies of the 8th Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, businesspeople, officials from the Executive Office of the President of Ukraine, heads of executive authorities of Ukraine and large Ukrainian companies, and legal entities controlled by Ukrainian businesspeople. These measures were adopted in accordance with last week’s Presidential Executive Order (see previous blog).
