Ukraine imposed sanctions on 199 Russians and one Ukrainian

Ukraine has imposed sanctions on 200 people associated with Russia. Corresponding decree signed by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Under the restrictions were Yuri Ushakov, assistant to the President of Russia and member of the supervisory board of Rosatom, Yuriy Ushakov, assistant to the President Larisa Brycheva, adviser to the head of Rosatom Renat Karchaa, former head of the apparatus of the army- industrial commission Igor Borovkov and Russian-appointed director of the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant Yuri Chernichuk. He is the only Ukrainian on the sanctions list.

In early February, Zelensky imposed sanctions on 200 Russian companies, including against Rosatom, its subsidiaries and other companies in the nuclear industry. The list includes FSUE “Zaporizhzhia NPP”.

The Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant has been occupied by Russian troops since early March. It is periodically subjected to bombardments, in which Moscow and Kiev blame each other. The Ukrainian side claims that station employees were forced to sign contracts with Rosatom.

The European Union is considering the introduction of the tenth package of sanctions against Moscow because of the aggression against Ukraine. New restrictions could affect the nuclear sector.
