Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko encourages to consider sanctions against Russian occupation authorities in Crimea, stifling independent journalists on the peninsula, President’s press secretary Svyatoslav Tsegolko informed on Facebook.

‘President commissioned to consider personal sanctions against people involved in unlawful actions against independent mass media and in breach of freedom of speech laws on the territory of Crimea and in the city of Sevastopol’, - Tsegolko wrote.

According to Tsegolko, Poroshenko sees such actions necessary ‘in light of systematic and purposeful breach of human rights for freedom of speech, belief and expression by Russian occupation authorities in annexed Crimea’.
