The list, reported by the Europe Press agency, includes Ukrainian singer Irina Allegrova, TV presenter Zhanna Padova, singer Dimytro Bilan, presenter Dana Borisova, and singer Oleksandr Buinov.
The list also includes the name of the former Ukrainian football player Anatoly Tymoshuk, who remained the coach of the Zenit football club in St. Petersburg after the Russian invasion, singer Larisa Dolina, actor Dimytro Dyuzhev, singer Victoria Daineko, actor Dimytro Garatyan or singer Belib Kirkorov.
In accordance with Decree 4/2023, the proposal of the Security Service of Ukraine to impose economic sanctions and other restrictions on these persons was approved.
The secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council, Oleksiy Danilov, will be responsible for overseeing and implementing these sanctions, according to the Ukrainian news agency Ukrinform.
On the other hand, the Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs is responsible for informing the relevant authorities of the European Union, the United States of America and other countries about the sanctions and restrictions so that they can apply similar measures.
In December, the Ukrainian president imposed sanctions on 13 clerics of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, some of them with the withdrawal of citizenship, a decision that the Kremlin today classified as “satanic”, because it coincides with Orthodox Christmas.
Other Ukrainian religious were accused of treason, subversive activities or “spreading propaganda theses among believers”.
