“The Ukrainian parliament is expected to vote on sanctions on Tuesday. Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council will also make a decision on sanctions based on materials received from Ukraine’s Security Service, the cabinet of ministers, the president and Ukraine’s National Bank,” the Ukrainian prime minister said.
