The Russian government has expanded the list of Ukrainian citizens against whom economic sanctions are being imposed: the total number of people on the list increased from 849 to 922. The corresponding document was published on the official legal website of the Russian Federation.
The list includes: Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba; National Security and Defense Council Secretary Olexiy Danilov; Lyudmila Denisova, Commissioner for Human Rights of the Verkhovna Rada; Deputy Foreign Minister Emine Dzhaparova and others.
The government of the Russian Federation determined the blocking (freezing) of non-cash funds, uncertified securities and property on the territory of Russia and a ban on the transfer of funds (withdrawal of capital) outside the territory of the Russian Federation with special economic sanctions.
NSDC Secretary Danilov noted that the introduction of the sanctions is the best gift for the 30th anniversary of independence.
"I consider this the highest distinction and the best assessment of our joint work in upholding the national interests of our state," he wrote.
Minister Kuleba said that with sanctions Russia decided to take revenge on him for the Crimean Platform. “But that won't stop us. Crimea is Ukraine,” he wrote.
On Friday, August 20, the National Security and Defense Council, on the proposal of the SBU, introduced personal sanctions against Russian judges, military and intelligence officers for the persecution of Ukrainian citizens in the occupied Crimea.
