The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) should analyze information about the stay in Crimea of politicians from European and other countries to impose sanctions on them, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC) Oleksandr Turchynov has said.
"The SBU must prepare and submit to the NSDC of Ukraine a list of officials from the European Parliament, as well as politicians from the countries of the European Union, the CIS and Latin America, who, according to Russian media, arrived with a three-day visit to the annexed Crimea," Turchynov said.
If this information is confirmed, the issue of imposing sanctions against them will be considered at a meeting of the Council, the press service of the NSDC said on Sunday.
"In addition, information about the participation of Ukrainian citizens in this propaganda action is also subject to verification and, in case of confirmation of their stay in Crimea, criminal proceedings should be opened in accordance with the current legislation," Turchynov said.
