Moldova to sanction 25 individuals complicit in Russian invasion of Ukraine - MFA

The Moldova authorities will introduce restrictive measures against about 25 persons, including citizens of the Russian Federation, involved in the invasion of Ukraine.

This was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nicu Popescu, who spoke in an interview with Europa Liberă, Ukrinform reports.

"It is mainly about the ban on entry to Moldova, the blocking of bank accounts or assets of those who are involved in aggression against Ukraine," he said.

According to the minister, the decision has already been made, but it will take time to complete "all legal steps."

At the same time, he stopped short of naming the individuals who would be banned from crossing in but noted that the stop list would contain "nearly 25 people" and that "about half of them" are Russian citizens.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, the international working group on Russia sanctions, led by the head of the Ukrainian President’s Office Andriy Yermak and Director of the Freeman-Spogli Institute of International Studies (FSI), Ambassador Michael McFaul, together with experts from the Kyiv School of Economics, published a study into the impact of sanctions on Russia’s economy.
