It is proposed to introduce sanctions against legal and physical persons of the Russian Federation in the form of freezing assets before the de-occupation of the territory of Ukraine.

Prosecutor General Yury Lutsenko stated that the President’s Administration has requested a list of Russian legal and physical persons in respect of which proposed the imposition of sanctions. On Tuesday, December 4, reports Interfax-Ukraine.

Lutsenko suggested that this is followed by consideration of a question on the national security Council.

“I hope the President will support me (the proposal to initiate the NSDC introduction of sanctions against legal and natural persons of the Russian Federation in the form of freezing assets before the de-occupation of the territory of Ukraine – ed.). Anyway, I have now been informed that the presidential administration has requested all the lists, details. It is obvious that in the near future will be a series of meetings that conclude with the decision of the national security Council,” – said Lutsenko at a briefing in Kyiv.

The attorney General stressed that the introduction of martial law in Ukraine requires a rethinking of what is happening with the Russian business in Ukraine.

“More than a month we collected information, what he is (Russian business – ed.) is, what is the array of this business. I can tell you that it is four volumes with a height of about 40 cm, and each page of these volumes up to 15 legal entities, then there is a huge array of legal and natural persons-residents of the Russian Federation who do business in Ukraine”, – he said.

Thus, according to Lutsenko, part of the business carried on in very important sectors of the economy.

“As a member of the Council, yesterday I signed the letter to the President and Secretary of the national security Council with a proposal to use the applicable law on sanctions… I propose to use the freezing of assets of Russian business to the de-occupation of our country,” he said.

The attorney General noted that this, of course, should not be a blanket decision, it is important to analyse each of the strategic industries, but the decision must be made.

“Continue to put up with the fact that citizens or firms of the aggressor country earn in Ukraine, I consider unacceptable. This is my citizenship, I sent in the manner prescribed by law”, – summed up Lutsenko.
