VILNIUS, July 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Lithuania may impose sanctions against some Russian citizens over Russia’s stance on Ukraine, Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite said on Thursday.
“Last week, a decision was made in Brussels that each (European Union) country will be granted a possibility to consider imposing national sanctions,” Grybauskaite said.
The Lithuanian Foreign Ministry is currently considering this issue, the ex-Soviet Baltic republic’s president said.
“We’ll soon learn the essence of these sanctions and the names of persons on whom they may be imposed,” the Lithuanian president said.
Lithuania has taken up the sanctions issue after neighboring Latvia decided earlier this week to blacklist three Russian singers - Oleg Gazmanov, Iosif Kobzon and Alla Perfilova, also known as Valeriya. Latvia said they were banned from entering the country because “their activities are aimed at violating Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty”.
