Ukrainian President to discuss 'June package' of sanctions against Russia with EU leaders

President of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, said that he will discuss the "June package" of sanctions against Russia with the leadership of the European Union, reports Radio Liberty.

"We will discuss the June package of sanctions," Poroshenko told journalists in the Belgian capital, Brussels.

Representatives of the European Union have not yet commented on Poroshenko’s statements.

Earlier, Petro Poroshenko, by his own decree, approved the National Security and Defense Council decision to impose personal sanctions for Russia's aggression in the Crimea and the Donbas.

Currently, there is already a number of valid EU sanctions packages against Russia, including economic and individual restrictive measures, as well as sanctions against the Crimea itself.

Among other things, Europeans are not allowed to invest in the Crimea and Sevastopol, buy real estate there, supply goods, and even provide technical assistance aimed at improving the infrastructure of the peninsula.
