The President has imposed sanctions against Iranian and Syrian individuals – those aiding Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.
All those who support Russian aggression in different regions of the world can only be marginalized. This is what President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a video message on Saturday, March 18.
“There are new sanctions on the NSDC. More than 400 people and companies. Most of them are Russian. This is the military-industrial complex of a terrorist state. But it is also Iranian and Syrian people, those who help terrorism. We are carefully working on each step of the sanctions,” said the leader.
Zelensky noted that the Ukrainian sanctions are part of international pressure on Russia.
“All those who make weapons for terrorism against Ukraine, who help Russia to provoke aggression, in particular, by providing the Shahed, who support Russia’s destruction of international law, can only become marginalized for the world. This will be applied not only to the aggression against the Ukrainians, starting with Crimea, as well as for other aggressions of Russia against the international order, including the territory of Syria,” said the President.
The head of state noted that at one time the people of Syria did not receive proper international protection, and this gave the Kremlin and its accomplices a sense of impunity.
“Syrian cities were destroyed by Russian bombs in the same way as our cities. It is the impunity that is the reason for the current aggressiveness of the Kremlin,” Zelensky said.
The President emphasized that “when Ukrainians defend themselves, when the UN Charter is restored to our land, justice will provide guarantees to many other parts of the world.”
It was previously reported that Zelensky imposed sanctions against Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad.
On March 15, Bashar al-Assad met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Kremlin. The President of Syria said that he recognizes the territories of Ukraine occupied by the Russian Federation as “Russian”.
