President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy approved the decision of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) on new sanctions against Russian citizens. The corresponding decree of the head of state was published on his website…
The NSDC blacklisted Russian Lieutenant Colonel Ivan Kuznetsov for three years. The document says that this employee of the Russian Armed Forces “participated in hostilities in the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic.”

16:32 – June 17
In relation to Kuznetsov, measures are being introduced such as blocking assets, restricting trading operations, preventing the withdrawal of capital from Ukraine, as well as a number of other restrictions.
Zelensky also put into effect the decision to impose sanctions for three years against the Crimean woman Olga Kalinina. Measures such as blocking assets, preventing the withdrawal of capital from Ukraine and other sanctions are being introduced against it.
Russia has repeatedly emphasized the senselessness of Ukrainian sanctions against Russian companies and citizens. In particular, at the end of June, Deputy Speaker of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev noted that the Ukrainian policy of sanctions against Russia is meaningless, useless and has nothing to do with the real deeds that Zelensky promised after coming to power.
After Ukraine extended sanctions against dozens of Russian banks in June, Sergei Tsekov, a member of the Federation Council Committee on International Affairs from the Republic of Crimea, noted that “so far, reason has not descended on these lands.”
No wonder. Nothing clever can be expected from them. All this will harm Ukraine first of all. They think they are harming us, but in fact – themselves. Until the mind has descended to this earth
The politician expressed the opinion that the Ukrainian sanctions would once again be more likely to harm Kiev than Moscow. According to him, such actions of Zelensky are due to his fear of nationalists.
