A snap session of the National Security and Defence Council kicked off in Kyiv; the key topic discussed is possible sanctions against the local branches of Russia’s Sberbank. After this session, the sanctions could be imposed immediately.
‘Our goal is to restore Ukraine’s sovereignty’. This is how President Poroshenko commented on the issue, as another wave of public protests against Sberbank’s activity in Ukraine arose.
One of the recent protests ended up in bricking up a building of Sberbank in Kyiv.
