Moscow admits the introduction of dignitaries from the Ukrainian authorities in the sanctions list, but the “punishment” of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko would be an excessive step and is not provided. This was stated to journalists the press-Secretary of Russian leader Dmitry Peskov.

Answering the question, what are the criteria for listing on the sanctions list and why there are all the leadership of Ukraine, but not Ukrainian President, Peskov said: “Traditionally, presidents are not included in the sanctions lists. This is prohibitive step.”

He also forwarded to the Russian government questions about the criteria for the inclusion of persons in the “black list”.

As reported, Russia has imposed sanctions against Ukraine. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed a special decree on economic restrictive measures against 322 of Ukrainian citizens and 68 companies. Read in detail which policies and companies included in the sanctions list of the Kremlin.
