Kiev Announces Sanctions Against Russians

Kiev announced Wednesday that it would impose sanctions against Russian citizens and companies that support the pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.

"A committee on the imposition of sanctions against the Russian Federation has been created," Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk announced at a ministerial meeting, RIA Novosti reported.

Yatsenyuk added that he had instructed the committee to submit a list of sanctions against Russian citizens and companies that "support and finance terrorism in Ukraine and encroach on its territorial integrity and independence" to the Ukrainian government within ten days.

Russia has continued to deny accusations that it provides the pro-Russian separatists of eastern Ukraine with military equipment or other kinds of support.
