Russia will soon impose sanctions against Ukraine as ordered by President Putin. Prime Minister of Russia Dmitriy Medvedev said that as quoted by TASS news agency.

According to Medvedev, there are currently several editions of the respective document. The decree foresees that sanctions will be implemented against those who 'hurt the interests of the Russian Federation', as he put it.

Medvedev added that the restrictions include blocking the Russia-based assets and the ban of importing the assets.

The Russian Prime Minister also stated that neither the presidential order nor the governmental decree will concern the entire Ukrainian nation.

'It is absolutely unacceptable. On the contrary, we are filled with the most friendly feelings to the Ukrainian people. But separate citizens...commit actions aimed at doing damage to our country, and they are on that list,' he said.
