The European Union has criticized Russia for the imposition of sanctions on Ukrainian citizens and companies in Ukraine, Ukrinform reports.

The EU called the decision of the Russian government unjustified, Rikard Joswiak, Radio Liberty reporter in Brussels, wrote on Twitter, referring to the EU spokesperson.

According to Joswiak, it is necessary to avoid steps aimed at exacerbating the situation and the introduction of these restrictions does not help to restore the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

Moscow has imposed financial sanctions against 322 Ukrainian citizens and 68 companies owned by prominent Ukrainian businessmen.

The announcement was made in a decree signed by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, published on the country’s government website.

The sanctions were described as counter-measures drawn up in response to Ukraine’s sanctions against Russian citizens and companies.

The sanctions include the freezing of assets and property on Russia’s territory, and a ban on the transfer of money (withdrawal of capital) from Russia.
