‘Our sanctions need not be less tough than those already imposed by the EU, the US and Canada’.
This was reported yesterday at a press briefing by Advisor to the Minister of Internal Affairs Anton Gerashchenko. He spoke on sanctions which Interior Ministry is preparing against the persons who promote terrorism and separatism in Ukraine.
‘Our sanctions need not be less tough comparing to those already imposed on Russia by the EU, the US and Canada. Considerable part of the sanctions will touch upon financial markets control, namely upon activities of Russian banks on Ukraine’s territory in order to prevent them from sending money to support terrorism’.
According to Mr. Gerashchenko next round of sanctions will foresee ban of entry to Ukraine for persons who demonstrated their hostile attitude towards Ukraine, supported illegal annexation of Crimea and Putin’s policy to start a terrorist war on Ukraine’s territory. ‘By uniting our efforts with the West we have to make Russia return Crimea back and stop financing terrorism in Ukraine” – stated Anton Gerashchenko.
