Ukraine welcomes the extension of sanctions against the Russian Federation as an answer to aggression in Donbas and Crimea, in particular against those involved in the supply of Siemens turbines to Crimea. The corresponding post was published by the President Petro Poroshenko, as well as the Ukrainian Embassy in the United States.

"I welcome the decision of the US Treasury to further expand the list of sanctions against Russia for its brutal aggression against Ukraine. My meetings with the American leadership in Davos give me confidence that the sanctions policy against Russia will only increase until Ukraine fully regains its territorial integrity," Poroshenko wrote.

The embassy of Ukraine in the United States also welcomes the expansion of the sanctions list against the Russian Federation.

"We welcome the decision of the US Treasury to impose additional sanctions against the Russian Federation in order to force the Kremlin to fulfill its obligations under the Minsk agreements, withdraw Russian forces from the territory of Ukraine, and end the occupation of Crimea," the report said.

We recall, on January 26, the United States extended sanctions to 9 Russian companies, another 12 sanctions were clarified. In addition, 21 names have been added to the sanctions list, including Andrei Tcherezov, Deputy Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation. Now Russians and companies that participated in the supply of Siemens turbines to Crimea are under the new sanctions.
Russia said they could introduce sanctions in response to the ones deployed by the USA, according to the press service of Russia’s foreign ministry.

“If the U.S. authorities prefer to end economic and other relations with Russia, it’s their right, and we reserve the right for responding,” the MFA wrote.
