Kiev extends sanctions against Russia
Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council added more people and legal entities to its sanctions list imposed on Russia. Kiev synchronized sanctions with the ones imposed by the US Treasury on April 6 and extended recent years’ own restrictions.
Besides, sanctions target individuals "involved in informational and cyber aggression" against Ukraine, "in illegal activities against Ukrainian citizens who are unlawfully held in Russia," as well as members of the Russian State Duma (lower house of parliament) and Federation Council (upper house).
"The sanctions against individuals and legal entities are extended for a period of three years or an indefinite period, following a motion of Ukraine’s cabinet, Ukraine’s Security Service and Ukraine’s National Bank," a press release of the Ukrainian Council for National Security and Defense says.
The list of individuals and legal entities subject to the restrictive measures has not yet been published, TASS reported.
