Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree expanding the list of Ukraine’s individuals and legal entities under countersanctions, TASS reported.
"The list of Ukraine’s individuals and legal entities, with special restrictive measures to be applied against them, has been expanded. I signed the relevant decree," the Prime Minister tweeted.
"This was done to protect interests of the Russian state, companies and citizens of Russia," Medvedev said.
On November 1, Medvedev signed a government decree introducing special economic measures against 322 Ukrainian citizens and 68 companies. Counter-sanctions included freezing non-cash funds, non-documentary securities and property in Russia and banning transfer of funds (withdrawal of capital) outside Russia
