The government suggested that citizens of the Russian Federation and other states who “supported a military aggression against Ukraine as well as terrorism and occupation of a part of the country” will not be allowed to enter Ukraine.

Besides, the cabinet initiated to freeze assets and to restrict capital outflows from Ukraine for those Russian individuals and legal entities whose share of the charter capital was in property of the Russian Federation and that supported the “military aggression against Ukraine.”
At the same time, the government suggested that “permits and licences for bringing banknotes of Ukraine’s national currency from Russia into Ukraine should not be given.”Ukraine’s state structures are recommended to ban purchases of goods and services from Russian companies, except cases when “these goods or services cannot be substituted.”
The recommendations say that Russian individuals and persons who act under their control or in their interests should be excluded from participation in privatization or renting Ukraine’s state property.
Besides, the cabinet suggested introduction of additional ecological, sanitary, phytosanitary and veterinary control of foodstuffs, textiles, beauty products and household detergents from Russia.

Kiev called on Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council to inform the relevant agencies of the European Union, the United States and other G7 countries upon the introduction of the sanctions so that they would consider implementing their analogous sanctions.
