So, it happened. Russian sanctions against Ukraine imposed.
Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed a government decree introducing special economic measures for 322 Ukrainian citizens and 68 companies.
Government Decree number 1300, aimed at the implementation of the relevant presidential decree of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin of November 1, entered into force.
Among those to whom the restrictions apply:
son of the president of Ukraine Aleksey Poroshenko
Head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov
Head of Naftogaz of Ukraine, Andrei Kobolev
Head of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Viktor Muzhenko
Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko
Minister of Defense Stepan Poltorak
Speaker of the Supreme Rada Andrei Paruby
Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration Konstantin Yeliseyev
ex-premier of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk
nationalists Dmitry Yarosh and Oleg Tyagnibok
leader of “Batkivschiny” Yulia Tymoshenko
and many, many others.
The list also includes judges of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine, deputies of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine of the 8th convocation, major Ukrainian businessmen, officials of the presidential administration of Ukraine, heads of executive authorities of Ukraine and large Ukrainian companies, as well as legal entities controlled by major Ukrainian businessmen.
Among the companies are the largest chemical enterprise of Ukraine “Dneproazot”, the oil and gas company “Geo Alliance”, the manufacturer of alcohol-containing products “Ukrspirt”, one of the largest Ukrainian commercial and industrial groups Fozzy Group, the manufacturer of trucks “AvtoKrAZ”, the manufacturer of heat and power equipment “Ukrhimenergo”, INGO Ukraine insurance company, distributor in the pharmaceutical market BaDM, Credit Dnepr Bank, one of the largest Ukrainian agricultural enterprises Food and Grain Corporation U Krajina, financial-industrial group Development Construction Holding, media group StarLightMedia.
The Cabinet of Ministers of the Russian Federation noted that the introduction of Russian countermeasures “is aimed at countering unfriendly actions against Russian citizens and legal entities from Ukraine, at removing the restrictions imposed by the Ukrainian side against these persons, and normalizing bilateral relationship. ” “The Russian government reserves the right to cancel special economic measures in the event Ukraine abolishes the restrictive measures imposed on Russian citizens and legal entities,” the Cabinet of Ministers said in a statement.
According to the decree, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation and the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation must “ensure the balance of commodity markets and prevent the negative impact of special economic measures on the activities of Russian organizations.”
The document provides for the formation of proposals “on the abolition of the decision in the event of the abolition of restrictive measures imposed by Ukraine on citizens and legal entities of Russia.”
There is no doubt that the response of the Russian Federation to the sanctions of Kiev will lead to a significant reduction in the trade turnover of the two countries, as well as a reduction in the share of Russian investments, and this is a sensitive issue for the Ukrainian business.
In addition, Russian measures will allow cutting off the cash flows that Kiev is directing to military actions in the Donbas. That is, there will be no money for war.
According to experts and analysts, the most painful Russian counter-sanctions will be for individuals. This is a serious blow to the wealth of the Ukrainian oligarchs, who still own the majority of tangible assets in the country. The blow was dealt to the only real value for them — wealth.
And this is indeed a serious blow to those who have long been engaged in anti-Russian activities, openly bragging about it.
The hysterical howls of our Ukrainian “Nebratevs” that they do not need sanctions are quite expected.
Well shkodit, when few people realized that you naughty …
