Russia expands list of sanctioned Ukrainians

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has expanded the list of Ukrainian citizens on whom special economic measures are imposed by Russia, as per the government order of December 16 published on the official legal information website, ONA reports.

According to the document, nine more people were included in the list, while two Ukrainians were removed. Therefore, now around 570 people are under sanctions.

On November 1, 2018, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed a government order implementing a presidential decree aimed at introducing "economic restrictions following Ukraine’s unfriendly actions towards Russian individuals and companies." The document slaps restrictions on 322 Ukrainian individuals and 68 companies. The measures against individuals include blocking of non-cash funds, uncertified securities and property in Russia and a ban on the withdrawal of capital from Russia.
