KYIV (QHA) -

Ukraine commended expansion of the US sanctions list against Russia. Six of the State Duma deputies who were elected in the annexed Crimea entered the list.

“We are grateful to the United States for the continued policy of non-recognition of the illegal annexation of the Ukrainian Crimea by Russia. Today’s introduction of additional personal sanctions is a clear demonstration of an unwavering US position to force the Russian Federation to respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of our country,” reads the message on the Facebook page of the press service of the Ukrainian Embassy in the US.

Earlier it was reported that the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the US Treasury had added another six self-declared deputies in the State Duma of Crimea to its sanctions list.
