TOKYO, August 05, 5:41 /ITAR-TASS/. Japan’s Cabinet has approved additional sanctions on Russia over Ukraine, the Kyodo news agency reported on Tuesday.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's Cabinet formally approved the decision announced last week by the government as the United States and the European Union stepped up pressure on Russia with widened sanctions, Kyodo says. “Assets held in Japan by those directly involved in Russia's annexation of Crimea or the instability in eastern Ukraine will be frozen. Japan will also limit imports of Crimea-made products,” the report says.
The lists of sanctions on Russia that the Japanese Cabinet approved on Tuesday over Ukraine includes 40 individuals and two companies, the Japanese Foreign Ministry told Itar-Tass.
