President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Feb. 12 implemented a decision of the National Security and Defense Council to impose sanctions against 200 people associated with Russia, with the corresponding decree being published on the president’s official website.
The list of sanctioned persons to whom special economic and other restrictive measures will be applied was submitted by Ukraine’s SBU security service.
The restrictions apply mostly to citizens of Russia. Sanctions, in particular, were introduced against Russian diplomat Yuri Ushakov, one of the closest assistants of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin in matters of foreign economic policy.
Ukrainian collaborator Andriy Chernichuk, who was appointed by the Russian company Rosatom as the “general director” of the Russian-occupied Zaporizhzhya NPP, was also sanctioned.
The presidential decree goes into effect from the date of publication.
On Feb. 11, Zelenskyy announced the corresponding decisions of the National Security and Defense Council and noted that the SBU, the State Bureau of Investigation, and the Prosecutor General’s Office have achieved significant results in protecting Ukraine from those who worked for Russia.
