Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak notes that Ukraine has become a leader in the process of imposing sanctions against Russian energy carriers.

He wrote about this in his Telegram channel .

“Urgent news. Ukraine has become a leader in the process of imposing sanctions against Russian energy carriers, we have done very important and high-quality work. This is being announced for the first time,” Yermak said.

He noted that today Ukraine took advantage of the opportunity of the presidency in the European Energy Community, which our country received for 2022, and formally submitted to this organization a proposal to impose a ban on the purchase, import, transfer and transportation of energy products originating, produced or processed in Russia.

We are talking about all oil and oil products, coal and other types of solid fuels, liquefied natural gas, the head of the office emphasized.

“My team and I are looking for mechanisms of economic pressure on the Russian Federation 24/7 and we find them,” he said.

So, according to Yermak, now the European Energy Community, on the basis of Ukraine’s proposal, must make a decision addressed to all parties.

The head of the OP noted that the Energy Community is an international organization that includes all the countries of the European Union and 9 more countries.

“Ukraine sets before the EU and countries such as Georgia and Serbia an ambitious, but quite realistic task to stop funding the punitive machine, the army, the state apparatus, Russian propaganda – everything that ensures the aggressive actions of this state, including the war in Ukraine. Russia must be deprived of resources for the war – economically crushed. We will achieve our goal,” Yermak summed up.
