The United States, Canada and the European Union simultaneously announced the imposition of the Azov package of sanctions against Russia as a powerful transatlantic strike against its plans to occupy the Sea of Azov and the Kerch Strait.

 “Powerful and triune transatlantic strike against Russia’s plans to occupy the Sea of Azov and the Kerch Strait. Washington and Ottava together with Brussels declared the introduction of the Azov package of sanctions,” President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko posted on Facebook.

The Head of State thanked the international partners for support and clear position on the eve of the fifth anniversary of the Crimean peninsula occupation. “Ukraine-Transatlantic coalition is united and firm as never before in protecting of the fundamental principles of international law, especially of sovereignty and inviolability of the borders of Ukraine,” the President emphasized.

He noted: “The aggressor must acknowledge that the price for the armed aggression will keep rising!”

As reported, on March 15, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control designated six Russian individuals and eight entities in response to Russia’s aggression in Ukraine.

Canada imposed the sanctions on Russia over its aggression in the Black Sea.

The European Union imposed sanctions on eight Russian officials due to the capture of Ukrainian sailors in the Kerch Strait in November 2018.
