Ukrainian parliament recommends imposing individual sanctions against Vladimir Putin

The Supreme Rada of Ukraine has recommended to the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council to introduce individual sanctions against Russian citizens including President Vladimir Putin, whom the Ukrainian parliamentarians believe to be having a hand in “unlawful arrest” of Nadezhda Savchenko.

256 MPs voted for the bill with 226 needed. The document sets a list of 25 individuals. The list includes also members of the Russian State Duma and the Council of Federation, Russian investigators, attorneys, judges and other officials. The resolution does not specify what kind of sanctions should imposed on them.

As EAD reported earlier, the Ukrainian nationalist Nadezhda Savchenko was captured in summer 2014 when the Aydar battalion was defeated near Lugansk. Later, it became known that she was arrested while she was trying to cross the Russian border. Savchenko is charged with being involved in murder of Russian reporters, Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin, who were killed in a mortar attack on June 17 2014. Kiev called Savchenko the national hero, and Batkivshchyna Party made her a member of the Supreme Rada putting her on the party election list last November.
