MOSCOW, September 10. /ITAR-TASS/. No sanctions will influence Russia's stance on peace settlement in Ukraine, an aide to the Russian president Yury Ushakov told reporters on Wednesday.
Commenting on the law on sanctions that Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko signed on Wednesday, Ushakov said that "these sanctions will wield no influence on our principal approach to the crisis in the neighboring state."
Earlier on Wednesday, the official website of the Ukrainian parliament (Verkhovna Rada) reported that Poroshenko signed into law a bill that enables Ukraine to introduce sanctions against foreign countries, including Russia. The document has entered into force.
The law stipulates introduction of about 20 restrictive measures, including a ban on transit of energy resources, flights and cargoes via Ukraine.
