Zelensky imposes sanctions on Russian and Belarusian companies in Ukraine.
In a new step to block the connection of Russia and Belarus within Ukraine, President Volodymyr Zelensky has announced a set of sanctions to be imposed on companies and individuals from these countries.
Zelensky said that the government has imposed sanctions on 182 companies and three individuals, adding that, they will block all their assets and properties in Ukraine, which will be further used by the defence forces.
As per a list published by the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, the companies sanctioned by the government mainly engage in the transportation of goods, vehicle leasing, and chemical production.
“The list includes Russian potash fertiliser producer and exporter Uralkali, Belarus state-owned potash producer Belaruskali, Belarusian Railways, as well as Russia’s VTB-Leasing and Gazprombank Leasing both dealing with transport leasing”, said a statement from Ukrainian officials, cited by Reuters.
Hundreds of Russian and Belarussian people along with companies have been previously sanctioned by Ukraine following the invasion in February 2022.
