on Wednesday, the head of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has put into effect the punishment against the Russian Federation for a period of one year. The sanctions list has incorporated 388 physical And 105 legal entities.
THE ABSURDITY AND FEAR FOR ANTI-RUSSIAN PROPAGANDA
Director of the Institute of advanced countries Alexey Martynov called "absurd" situation In which Ukraine imposes punishment against its Inhabitants through the same list, That with respect to Russian citizens.
"Kiev identifies them As foreign Residents, although we realize That They are the people of Ukraine. How to Deposit penalties against its own People? Because It means That they are denied entry to the site of their own country? This is ABSURD, " said Martynov.
for its part, Deputy Dean of the faculty of world economy And world politics of the higher school of Economics, RIAC expert Andrei Suzdaltsev believes That the list included people who " have some meaning for the Ukrainian political elite As enemies ".
"They (the Kiev authorities) were selected so That citizens who are connected in some economically with Ukraine, have an effect on some creative circles And so on," Suzdaltsev said.
Alexey Martynov showed That the inclusion of part of the officials on the Sanctions list also raises questions.
"I don't know what criteria They were guided, when included in a list of a number of Russian correspondents. Apparently, unintentionally poked a finger in the list of correspondents of some other of the largest Russian news Agency. The presence of international observers who were present at the referendum in Crimea, This is also nonsense, " drew the attention of a specialist.
According to Suzdaltsev, in the list of those citizens who also have the ability to cause a political stir with his appearance in Ukraine." They (the Kiev authorities) choose the Plenipotentiaries of the Russian elite, which in reality, As a factor, have the opportunity to shift the focus of the Ukrainian imposing anti-Russian ", - noted He. Thus, according to Suzdaltsev, Kiev "trims" the intellectual And political relationship between Ukraine and Russia.
The ACTUAL respect of the DND AND LNR
Alexey Martynov believes That the inclusion in the Sanctions list of Kiev commissioners proclaimed Donetsk And Lugansk national republics is the actual recognition of their statehood from the Ukrainian authorities.
"I wish to draw attention to the last part of a list that lists the leaders And functionaries of the DPR AND LPR. The inclusion of these persons in the list of Ukraine recognizes the lack of its jurisdiction within people's republics ", - noted the expert.
"The only thing It is possible to explain This fully respect the statehood of these republics," He said.
"NORMANDY FORMAT" AND the ANSWER of the Russian capital

"No," said Andrei Suzdaltsev to the question about, will enter Kiev punishment relative to Russian individuals And legal entities in the upcoming negotiations in the " Normandy format ", for example on the position of the Russian capital.
Thus Suzdaltsev said That the Russian Federation will not leave without attention the step of Kiev And take counter-measures." Russia, taking into account That Ukraine enters against us (Russians - ed.) punishment, not leave It without attention And will impose retaliatory penalties against Ukraine ", - He said.
