Ukrainian sanctions list includes the much smaller Russian companies and individuals, it should have been. About this in his blog on the website of the newspaper “Ukrainian truth” wrote the member of Parliament Svitlana zalishchuk.

In his post Zalishchuk reminds that in 2018 the Ukrainian list, provided by the law “On sanctions” had to be replenished twice in April, when further restrictions against Russia imposed by the us Ministry of Finance, and in July, after the imposition of EU sanctions against Russian companies-builders of the Crimean bridge.

Both times about the need to make the defendants in the Western sanctions list, said the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko. The first time he addressed the Council for national security and defense Council (NSDC), the second to the Ministry of foreign Affairs. In the end, however in the Ukrainian list were 40 defendants less than it should. Among them there are both legal and natural persons, for example, a businessman Arkady Rotenberg and company “Minudobreniya”.

“Article 5 of the law of Ukraine “On sanctions” clearly says that the proposals on sanctions, as the final decision – the area of responsibility of the national security Council,” wrote Zalishchuk. According to her, appeal to the Council failed. And only the government of Ukraine proposed to amend the sanctions list of 19 companies that were building the Crimean bridge. However, according to the Deputy, even this will be insufficient and will have to address the issue even with the 20 defendants.
