GENEVA, December 16. /TASS/. Switzerland expanded on Tuesday its blacklist against the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, adding 13 individuals and 5 entities.
This follows the European Union’s sanctions adopted on November 28.
The Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) said the decision comes in response to the November 2 elections in the republics which have been opposed by the European Union and the United States.
Swiss companies are not allowed to establish new business contacts with the individuals and entities on the sanctions list. The move comes in bid to prevent attempts of bypassing sanctions introduced by the European Union amid the Ukrainian crisis.
