MP: Washington to put Medvedchuk on sanction list
Ivan Vinnyk referred to own sources.
MP Ivan Vinnyk (Petro Poroshenko Bloc) claims that the United States will put the leader of the public movement Ukrainian Choice, Viktor Medvedchuk, on the new sanctions list.
"From trustworthy sources, among other things, it became known that the United States are going to put Medvedchuk on the sanctions list in connection with Russian aggression against Ukraine," Vinnyk said Friday, 12 January, on the TV channel 112-Ukraine.
Medvedchuk is the leader of the public movement Ukrainian Choice, the representative of Ukraine at the talks in Minsk and the father of Russian President Putin's godchild.
The US is expected to slam new sanctions in February in connection with Russian aggression against Ukraine.
Medvedchuk has been on the US sanctions list since March 2014. He is prohibited from entering the US, his assets and property in the country are subject to freezing.
