This list includes three more Ukrainians. They were awarded for activities related to Russian aggression.
The list of sanctions includes four Ukrainians, according to the website of the US Treasury Department . Among them is Taras Kozak , owner of 112, NewsOne and ZIK, and an MP from the Opposition Platform For Life party .
Also on this list is another MP from the OPZH , Oleh Voloshyn , former MP from the Party of Regions Volodymyr Oliynyk and former Deputy Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Volodymyr Sivkovych .
They will be subject to an asset freeze and a travel ban.
The actions of these four Ukrainians fall under President Joe Biden’s decree, which aims to punish those involved in Russia’s foreign aggression.
We will remind, earlier journalists proved that Taras Kozak owned the Russian oil company “Purneft”. It was sold to the “daughter” of the Belarusian Belorusneft, the Yangpur oil company, and the agreement was discussed by Putin and Lukashenko.
Sanctions against Taras Kozak were also imposed by a decision of the National Security and Defense Council. They envisage the closure of the 112 Ukraine, ZIK and NewsOne channels.
Together with Viktor Medvedchuk, he is suspected of treason and attempted looting of national resources in the Ukrainian Crimea, which was temporarily occupied by Russia.
In July 2021, the court seized Taras Kozak’s property.

Not before time. Now the US and UK need to remove the RT trash permanently from the aisrpace.
Unbelievable Vodafone still hasn’t scratched RT from their cable tv network, Deutsche Telekom did.
It’s all about money as usual.
Sadly UATV broadcasts lots of soviet garbage movies as i can see, glorifying the USSR. Not sure this will help…
And breeding zombies. I’ve never seen such a concentration of idiots as there are on RT and defending ruSSo-fascism.
Whatever happened to Americans like this woman. Liz Wahl who worked for RT in the US?
“I cannot be part of a network funded by the Russian government that whitewashes the actions of Putin. I’m proud to be an American and believe in disseminating the truth, and that is why, after this newscast, I’m resigning.”
But, such individuals should actually be in a penal colony, making little rocks out of big rocks. Do you copy, TV clown?
Out of those sanctioned only one is still in Ukraine. No prizes for guessing where the other 3 are.
