The introduction of Russian sanctions against Ukrainian individuals and legal entities is meaningless, and Kiev is not afraid of decisions of Moscow. On Thursday, July 19, Prime Minister of Ukraine Vladimir Groysman, reports “Gordon”.
“We are not afraid of their decisions. In any case we will be tough against the aggressor. We will make more measures, including in the international arena, so everyone was punished for their crimes. And the introduction of sanctions against Ukraine is just nonsense, which I’m not surprised,” he said.
According Groisman, it is difficult to assess how much damage Russia has done to Ukraine is “a sovereign, European state.” “More than 10 thousand killed and nearly 30 thousand wounded, 1 million 700 thousand forced migrants due to the fact that their house was occupied by militants, and that they want to impose sanctions,” he listed Prime Minister.
“Anything with impunity in this world happens. I believe that everyone who makes decisions about military orders, about the seizures, about the shelling and so on, will bear responsibility”, — he added.
