KIEV, January 18. /TASS/. A draft law has been registered in Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada on imposing sanctions on Russia’s Rosneft oil and gas company and its subsidiaries in Ukraine, the press service of the Ukrainian parliament said on Monday.
The text of the bill is not available on Verkhovna Rada’s website yet.
The bill was initiated by 20 lawmakers most of whom represent Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s People’s Front party (14 people), others are from Petro Poroshenko Bloc, the Batkivshchyna (Fatherland) party and two non-party members.
In Ukraine, Rosneft owns a network of fuel filling stations, which includes 141 facilities in 12 regions of Ukraine, TNK Industries Ukraine, the operator of wholesale deliveries of petroleum products, and the LINIK oil refinery in the Luhansk region that was stopped in early 2012.
On September 16, 2015, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed a decree on imposing sanctions against Russia, which applies to 105 companies, among them aviation, shipbuilding and banking companies, military-industrial centers and Russian TV channels.
