KIEV, March 31. /TASS/. Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council will make a decision shortly to toughen sanctions against certain Russian individuals, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said in Chernigiv on Tuesday.
According to Poroshenko, the sanctions will affect those individuals who are implicated in developments in Crimea and Donbas.
"They will include such measures as freezing assets and bank accounts," Ukrainian magazine Korrespondent quotes Poroshenko as saying.
In February, Ukrainian Minister of Economic Development and Trade Aivaras Abromavicius said that Kiev had joined the anti-Russian sanctions imposed by the United States, the European Union, Switzerland and the G7 group. "To date, 160 economic entities in Russia are targeted by these sanctions," the minister said at that time.
According to him, residents of Russia targeted by the sanctions will not be able to receive passive income in the form of royalties and interest on the territory of Ukraine and also to take part in privatizing and renting the country’s state-owned enterprises.
