Ukrinform learnt this from a representative of the European Union on Friday.
"The decision of the Russian Government to introduce economic measures against Ukrainian individuals and companies is groundless. It is necessary to avoid steps aimed at aggravating the situation and undermining the search for a solution to restore the territorial integrity of Ukraine," the EU stressed.
As reported, Russia imposed “special economic measures” against 322 Ukrainian citizens and 68 Ukrainian companies.
On October 22, Russian president Vladimir Putin signed the decree on sanctions against Ukraine. The document will be revoked if "Ukraine abandons sanctions against Russian companies and citizens."
Ukraine’s sanctions lists include about 1,700 individuals and about 700 legal entities, mostly from Russia.
