“A year ago, on September 16 last year, was put into effect the NSDC decision on sanctions. In the sanctions list is about 400 people: Russian politicians, oligarchs, analysts, plus about 100 Russian companies – a total of about 500 legal entities and individuals, who were under sanctions in accordance with the decree of President Poroshenko of 16 September 2016.
