The occupiers of Crimea have initiated “sanctions” against some 200 Ukrainian politicians.
The Presidium of the self-proclaimed state council of Crimea has banned nearly 200 Ukrainian politicians from entering Crimea.
On Friday, March 21, a resolution was adopted regarding “persons engaged in anti-Crimean activities, whose presence on the territory of the republic is undesirable.” The resolution was a response to several decisions of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
The list included “Ukrainian MPs who voted for the dissolution of the Verkhovna Rada of Crimea and the declaration of the republic as a demilitarized zone.”
Restrictions apply to the following: 19 MPs from the Party of Regions, 83 MPs from the Batkivshchyna party, 37 MPs from UDAR, 35 MPs from Svoboda and others. Sanctions are also being applied to the leaders of Pravyy Sector.
