KIEV, September 16. /TASS/. Ukraine is extending its blacklist of Russian companies and individuals over Crimea’s reunification with Russia, Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko said on Friday at a meeting of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council.
"Ukraine will extend the sanction list of Russian legal entities and individuals involved in violation of its territorial integrity and sovereignty," the presidential press service quoted him as saying.
Restrictive measures, according to Poroshenko, will be applicable to Russian defense-sector companies and financial institutions which support the self-proclaimed republics of DPR and LPR [Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republic], to sea and air shipment companies operating in Crimea.
He also suggested the blacklist also include those running for seats in the Russian State Duma lower parliament house from Crimea.
