 NSDC: Sanctions against Russia were introduced in first days of agression

Sanctions or restrictive measures against individuals and legal entities of the Russian Federation have been introduced in Ukraine since March 2014.

As reported by Censor.NET, this is announced by the National Security and Defense Council press service.

"First of all, the NSDC has ceased all military-technical cooperation as well as cooperation in defense and security spheres with the Russian Federation. The Cabinet of Ministers, Ministry of Defense, Security Service and Ukraine's intelligence agencies have denounced agreements with the relevant structures of the Russian Federation and ceased cooperation in these areas.

"In particular, Ukraine has stopped servicing missile systems, being an important component of the Strategic Missile Forces of the Russian Federation, which were produced at Pivdenmash Plant (A.M. Makarov Southern Machine-Building Plant - ed.) Transit of military equipment and dual-use products through Ukraine, both by land and air, has been halted. The goods turnover between the two countries has become four times as small as in 2013," the NSDC stated.

Moreover, Ukraine's law enforcement authorities have opened a series of criminal proceedings against Russian officials.

More than 1,700 Russian citizens are banned from entering the territory of Ukraine. Those who want to travel to Ukraine from Russia must bear their travel passports.

The report stresses that Sept. 2, 2015 the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine supported the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and the SBU in their intention to expand sanctions against certain individuals and entities of the Russian Federation and other countries. This decision will soon be put into effect by the corresponding presidential decree.
