Ukrainians offered to denounce Russians evading Western sanctions

Residents of Ukraine now have the opportunity to report on Russians who circumvent Western sanctions. To do this, a special section “War & Sanctions” was created on the portal of the National Agency for the Prevention of Corruption (NAPC). This was announced on Wednesday, August 10, in the department.

The publication explains that the main goal of the portal is to inform foreign governments and citizens about the already imposed sanctions against the Russians, to involve the public in a global campaign to expand the sanctions lists against persons supporting the special operation in Ukraine, including financially and informationally.

According to the department, thanks to the site, every Ukrainian can call for the imposition of sanctions on persons “who deserve it.” To do this, it is proposed to choose any person from the proposed list.

One example of such a circumvention of sanctions in the NAPC was the case when the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs unblocked the accounts of EuroChem after the Russian businessman Andrey Melnichenko, who had previously fallen under Western sanctions, allegedly transferred his company to his wife.

Earlier it was reported that on July 21, the European Union introduced the seventh package of sanctions against the Russian Federation. Before that, on June 3, the sixth package of sanctions against Russia was approved in final reading.

On June 17, speaking at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that anti-Russian sanctions are crazy and thoughtless. He also stressed that they did not achieve their main goal – to shake the Russian economy and inflict maximum damage on it.

Western countries have stepped up their sanctions policy in response to Russia’s special operation to protect the civilian population of the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, which Russia launched on February 24 amid the aggravation of the situation in the region due to shelling by the Ukrainian military.
