KIEV, December 26. /TASS/. The National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC) at a meeting on Wednesday decided to impose additional sanctions on Russian individuals and legal entities.

"Following the discussion of the issue "On application of personal special economic and other restrictive measures (sanctions)", it was decided to support the introduction of sanctions, primarily against legal entities and individuals - Russian companies, businessmen, politicians and deputies, law enforcement officers who actively supported or contributed to aggressive actions against Ukraine," according to the press release.
