Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin proposed to add to the sanction list of the European Union people responsible for the construction of the Kerch Strait Bridge in Crimea. Pavlo Klimkin wrote this on his Twitter page.
“We are thankful to our friends in the EU for extending “Crimean” sanctions for another year. It is important to add to the list those responsible for numerous human rights violations on the annexed peninsula and for the construction of the Kerch Strait Bridge. We have to transfer from the policy of “unrecognition” to de-occupation,” Klimkin wrote.
Earlier, European Union extended the sanctions against Russia for Crimea’s annexation. It is mentioned that the sanctions will act until June 23, 2019.
Previously, British prime minister Theresa May claimed G7 member countries were ready to impose new restrictions against Russia - if necessary.
The anti-Russian sanctions include the import ban on the goods from Crimean and Sevastopol; the ban of investments in the economy of Crimea; denial from tourist services in this area; and the export ban on certain goods and technologies to Crimea - including transport, TV communications and energy.
