The Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) will soon expand the sanctions on the Russian citizens who are involved in the annexation of Crimea and the destabilization of the situation and aggression in Donbass, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said.
"I can say that the NSDC will make a decision in the nearest future expanding the sanctions on some Russian citizens who were actively involved in the occupation of Crimea and the aggression against Ukraine in the east. Measures will also be taken to seize some assets and accounts," Poroshenko told reporters in Chernihiv on Tuesday.
The president reiterated that such actions are taking place in full synchrony with the actions taken by the EU and the U.S. and the G7 countries to coordinate the list of sanctions against Russia.
Responding to a question about control over Russian capital, Poroshenko said: "Of course, it [control] exists, the authorities will exercise control over the fulfillment of investment obligations."
Poroshenko said he means control over the fulfillment of social obligations, prevention of bankruptcies of enterprises, and other areas.
