Ukraine seeks to toughen anti-Russian sanctions for recognition of self-proclaimed DPR, LPR IDs

Ukraine seeks to toughen anti-Russian sanctions for recognition of self-proclaimed DPR, LPR IDsThe Ukrainian side intends to hold negotiations with Western partners about the possible strengthening of sanctions against Russia in connection with the decree issued by Russian President Vladimir Putin on the recognition of ORDLO "documents", Ukrainian Foreign Ministry's Policy and Communication Department Director Oleksiy Makeyev has said.

"The president clearly stated that such destructive actions of the Kremlin should lead to a discussion in the EU with our main partners with the aim of not easing sanctions, but rather their gain for such an aggressive policy of the Kremlin. And we will be working with our main partners so that the sanction pressure on Russia, as the only instrument of political pressure, be maintained and applied," Makeyev told journalists in Kyiv.

He noted that the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry on its part immediately responded to the decree of the Russian Federation, claiming the Kremlin violation of its obligations under the Minsk agreements.

"We will very closely monitor how other states will react. But the fact that the Kremlin's actions were condemned by the EU, the U.S., Germany, the OSCE, France and our main foreign partners, indicates that their assessment of the Kremlin's actions fully coincides with ours," the diplomat said.
