Ukraine has imposed sanctions against more than 3,600 Russians and Russian companies. Putinʼs relatives got there, as well as Russian propagandists, oligarchs and collaborators.

The press service of the Ministry of Economy informs about this.

"Persons who are involved in launching an aggressive war against Ukraine or who support Putinʼs regime must clearly understand that punishment will be inevitable. We will respond to every action directed against Ukraine and the Ukrainian people. In particular, with sanctions as a powerful tool of economic pressure," said Economy Minister Yuliya Svyridenko.

The list includes:

  • children and relatives of Vladimir Putin and his close circle;
  • representatives of regional elites and authorities of the Russian Federation;
  • oligarchs and their close circle;
  • artists and propagandists, in particular citizens of Ukraine;
  • collaborators who switched to the side of the enemy;
  • senior officials of Russian state corporations;
  • representatives of the top management of the armed forces of the Russian Federation;
  • representatives of the so-called "L/DPR" governments, the occupying "authorities" of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and leaders of illegal armed formations operating in the occupied territory of Ukraine.

In addition, sanctions were introduced against foreign citizens who worked as "observers" at Russian pseudo-referendums. Restrictions were also imposed on key Russian companies, banks, enterprises in the defense industry, mining, energy, communication, logistics, and other spheres.

  • The draft law on the nationalization of all Russian assets will be considered at the next meeting of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. According to President Volodymyr Zelensky, the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine decided to apply sanctions to "significant individuals and legal entities of Russia who did not have the courage to speak out in defense of humanity and international law, or who in one way or another are involved in aggressive steps against Ukraine and communities of democratic peoples".
