Ukrainian government endorses 2nd package of sanctions against Russia
The Ukrainian government has endorsed a second package of targeted sanctions against 1124 Russian people and 156 Russian entities, following its initial imposition of sanctions on Russia in September 2014 (Order 829-R) for what it described as "the aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine". Its September 2014 sanctions imposed on listed people a ban on entering Ukraine, moving assets from Ukraine to Russia and importing Ukrainian currency into Ukraine from Russia, participating in privatisation projects, and exporting military or dual-purpose goods to Russia. The 2nd package of measures has been submitted to the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine for review.
