KIEV, July 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Deputies of the regional legislature in the western Ukrainian Lviv region, which is believed to be the mainstay of Ukrainian far-right political views, have issued a resolution compelling the owners of retail trade outlets on the region's territory to label goods imported from Russia with a special symbol.

“The regional council took a decision to put a specialized label on the commodities produced in Russia and to hold public actions in support of Ukrainian producers,” said the council’s spokeswoman Nadiya Herbovka. “The goods imported from Russia will have a caption saying ‘Product of the Russian Federation’ and the Russian flag, and the retailers will place them on separate shelves.”

Meanwhile, Herbovka did not mention any calls to boycotting the produce made in Russia, but efforts of the regional council's deputies prove that this is the exact objective, which they might have set for themselves.

In addition, local media report that the legislators are pondering a ‘Buy Ukrainian’ public action.
