乌克兰外长:俄罗斯并非存在于真空,制裁行之有效 Ukraine Foreign Minister: Russia Does Not Live in a Vacuum, Sanctions Are Effective

乌克兰外交部长感谢加拿大和欧盟本星期宣布的决定,称之为国际社会团结一致,站在乌克兰一边,向俄罗斯发送明确信息的“重要”行动。

欧盟理事会主席塔斯克星期四宣布,欧盟28个成员国在继续对俄罗斯实施经济制裁的问题上团结一致。

欧盟限制俄罗斯进入欧盟这个诱人市场的制裁始于2014年,作为对俄罗斯并吞克里米亚并故意在相邻的一个主权国家制造不稳定的反应。欧盟说,对俄罗斯的制裁定期审议,以确保能实现既定目标。

这个星期早些时候,加拿大宣布将乌克兰列入自动武器控制名单,因而任何加拿大个人或公司都可以申请向乌克兰出口某些被禁止的武器弹药和装备。

The Ukraine's foreign minister applauded decisions announced this week by Canada and the European Union (EU) as “important” in demonstrating the international community's solidarity with Ukraine and sending a clear message to Russia.

EU Council President Donald Tusk announced on Thursday that leaders of the organization's 28 member states were “united on the rollover of economic sanctions on Russia.”

The European Union's sanctions post constraints for Russia's access to the coveted EU markets. Initially, they were put in place in 2014 “in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea and deliberate destabilization of a neighboring sovereign country." The EU said the sanctions are kept under “constant review” in order that they continue to contribute toward their stated objectives.

Earlier this week, the Canadian government added Ukraine to its Automatic Firearms Country Control List, thus enabling Canadian individuals and companies to apply for permits to export certain prohibited firearms, weapons and devices to Ukraine.
