KIEV, August 3. /TASS/. Ukraine’s foreign ministry has prepared a package of sanctions against Russia over Crimea, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavel Klimkin told the ICTV channel on Monday.
"A package of sanctions is ready. I signed them and personally referred them to the cabinet of ministers. I hope the package will be approved soon," he said.
Earlier, Ukraine’s National Security and Defence Council passed a decision to follow the lead of Western countries and impose sanctions on Russia. "To enhance pressure on Russia, the Ukrainian National Security and Defence Council passed a decision on the obligatory use of anti-Russian sanctions imposed by the European Union, Switzerland, the United States and the Group of Seven countries and initiated their toughening," the Council said.
In December 2014, the European Union and the United States imposed new economic sanctions against Crimea applicable to the areas of investment, tourism, transport, telecommunications, energy, prospecting and production of oil, gas and mineral resources.
