GOVERNMENT WILL SUBMIT PROPOSALS FOR CONSIDERATION BY NSDC TO EXPAND SANCTIONS LIST OF COMPANIES
This decision was made today during a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on the initiative of MTOT. Contiguous sanctions concern a number of legal bodies involved in the construction of gas transmission pipeline «Krasnodarskyi Krai – Crimea», illegal production of hydrocarbons in the occupied Ukrainian fields, including fields located within the continental shelf of Ukraine
Whence, Sanctions List includes 18 legal bodies registered in the Russian Federation, and other 6 registered in the territory of temporarily occupied Crimea.
Furthermore, Sanctions List includes companies that are involved in procurement activities for the factory of the military-industrial facility of the Russian Federation «LLC «Zavod Fiolent», which is located in the territory of temporarily occupied Crimea. Among them are companies registered in the territory of the Russian Federation, People's Republic of China, the Republic of Turkey and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Such actions by mentioned legal bodies contribute to the legitimation of the illegal occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopil by the Russian Federation, and also create real and potential threats to national interests, national security, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.
The imposition of sanctions on all concerned companies involved in the construction of gas transmission pipeline «Krasnodarskyi Krai – Crimea» and illegal production of hydrocarbons in the occupied Ukrainian fields will create a starting point for further actions to limit or terminate economic relations with the countries of the European Union and the United States of America.
The imposition of sanctions on the specified list of legal bodies will create a legal basis for its expansion.
In the future, the relevant orders will be submitted for consideration by the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine.
