Yatseniuk calls on Economy Ministry to ban purchase of oil products in Russia

The government this week may introduce a ban on the purchase of oil products in Russia.

Ukrainian Prime Ministers Arseniy Yatseniuk said this at a government sitting on Wednesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“We have imposed a range of sanctions on the Russian Federation. One of the key components of oil products from the Russian Federation for some reason has not been included into a sanction list. That’s why I’m calling on the Economy Ministry to elaborate a procedure for banning the purchase of oil products from the country-aggressor, which is Russia,” Yatseniuk said.

According to him, the issue should be considered by Friday and then it should be submitted for consideration at an extraordinary government sitting.
