The National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine decided to introduce new packages of sanctions against individuals and legal entities. This is reported by the website of the Ministry of Economy.
It is noted that sanctions have been introduced "against significant individuals and legal entities of Russia who did not find the courage to speak out in defense of humanity and international law, or who in one way or another are involved in aggressive steps against Ukraine and the community of democratic peoples."
The list adopted by the National Security Council includes more than 3,600 individuals and legal entities. In particular, the list includes:
children and relatives of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin and his close circle;
representatives of regional elites and authorities of Russia;
oligarchs and their close circle;
artists and propagandists, including citizens of Ukraine;
collaborators who defected to the enemy;
senior officials of state corporations;
representatives of the top management of the Russian Armed Forces;
representatives of the so-called "governments of the LPR/DPR", the occupying "authorities" of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and leaders of illegal armed formations operating in the occupied territory of Ukraine.
Sanctions were also adopted against foreign citizens — "international observers" who participated in referendums in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine.
Sanctions have also been introduced against key system-creating companies, banks, enterprises of the defense industry, mining, energy, communication, logistics and other industries.
According to a source informed of the department's decision, the Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska and billionaire Mykhailo Fridman, who owns Alfa Bank in Ukraine, were on the list.
