Russian aggression against Ukraine could be stopped if the sanctions pressure on the Kremlin increased. Vice Prime Minister, Minister for Reintrgration of temporarily occupied territories Oleksiy Reznikov said so in an evening show at Ukraine 24 TV channel.

"It's a boost of sanctions regime from all countries that support Ukraine so that this war stops being profitable for Russia. Russians are hard-nosed; they will asses things and consider what's more profitable for them - continuing this war or finally leaving our country", said the official.
