KIEV, August 06 /ITAR-TASS/. The Ukrainian government on August 8 will consider sanctions against Russia, Justice Minister Pavel Petrenko said on Wednesday.
“The government will hold a special meeting on Friday to consider proposals and make decisions on concrete sanctions against individuals and industries,” he told the Ukraina television company.
The government’s commissioner for European integration, Valery Pyatnitsky, said the list of Russian companies to be subject to sanctions would be published on August 12.
