The European Union made a decision on introducing individual sanctions against six people who are involved in the construction of Kerch Strait Bridge. Ukrainian President claimed this on his page on Facebook.
‘There is good news from Brussels! In the development of our agreements at the Ukraine-EU summit, the ambassadors of the EU member states decided to impose individual sanctions against six people who are involved in the construction of Kerch Strait Bridge,’ Poroshenko said.
Introduction of personal data sanctions is ‘the evidence of inevitability of punishment for any individuals or entities who were, are or will be relevant to the actions connected with a try of annexation and temporary occupation of Ukrainian Crimea’.
Poroshenko thanked the European allies for the solidarity and support of Ukraine in countering the Russian aggressor.
Reportedly, on June 18, the European Union extended sanctions against Russia for the annexation of Crimea in 2018.
Earlier, Theresa May, the British Prime Minister stated about the agreement reached between the leaders of G7 states, about their readiness to make a decision on introducing new restrictive measures against Russia, if necessary.
As we reported earlier, the EU sanctions include the ban on the export of commodities from Crimea and Sevastopol to the EU, investments in Crimea or Sevastopol, tourism services in Crimea and Sevastopol, export of certain commodities and technologies to Crimea, in particular in transportation, telecommunications, and energy realms.
Russian President Vladimir Putin opened the car part of the bridge which goes across the Kerch Strait connecting Crimea and Krasnodar Krai. Ukrainian MFA claimed that Ukraine is going to work on the extension of the national and international sanctions against the individuals or entities involved in the illicit construction of the bridge.
