MADRID, 8 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The president of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelenski, has announced the imposition of sanctions against more than 600 people who are part of the Russian leadership in response to the invasion of the country, unleashed on February 24 by order of the Russian president, Vladimir Putin.
The president has detailed that among those affected are 28 members of the Russian Security Council, 154 members of the Russian Federation Council --the Upper House of the Russian Parliament-- and 424 deputies of the Russian State Duma --the Chamber Go down--", before adding that "all of them are responsible for this war and terror against the people".
"None of them will avoid responsibility. It is only a matter of time," Zelensky said, stressing that the Ukrainian authorities "have already taken some of the necessary steps at the legal, diplomatic and political levels to make them accountable." "We will deliberately take other steps," he said, while anticipating that Ukrainian citizenship will be withdrawn from any person subjected to sanctions.
