Quote from Shmyhal: "Foreign orders of Rosatom [Russian state nuclear corporation – ed.] cost US$200 billion. Taking into consideration the occupation of the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant and nuclear blackmail, it is important to convey a signal to Russia through sanctions that it is unacceptable."


Details: In addition, the Prime Minister has highlighted the importance of imposing sanctions against individuals, including top management of Rosatom and all facilities of Russia’s nuclear industry. 

He has called the direct sanctions on facilities themselves and its contracts, including the ones with European countries, a second step.

Another sector that Ukraine would like to include in the next package of sanctions is the diamond industry.
