Anti-Russian sanctions from the international community helped reduce the level of aggression from the Russian Federation, respectively, they help to reduce the number of victims among Ukrainian servicemen in the ATO zone. This was in the “Evening Prime” to “112 Ukraine” said the head of the faction MFP Parliament Artur Gerasimov.

“Why sanctions are important. First, they keep Putin at the negotiating table. And the second, the key for us, they still save the lives of Ukrainians, the lives of our soldiers. Despite the sanctions, unfortunately, we have people dying almost every day. I’m sure if it were not for the sanctions, the level of aggression level of these attacks would have been much greater. So this is why it is important today, these sanctions are not just to maintain, and even reinforce. And here we can clearly say that the Ukrainian authorities, the Ukrainian President has managed these things to do and strengthen. Let’s remember, when there was aggression in Georgia, there were sanctions? No. When was the aggression in others,even Syria now think, was able to impose sanctions? No. For Ukraine they are embedded, and they are constantly extended. In the context of these things should be considered and the decision this week the court in the Hague the previous one, and the visit of the President of Ukraine in the United Kingdom,” – said Gerasimov.
