The Verkhovna Rada, during a meeting on February 23, by a majority vote approved the decision to impose sanctions against deputies of the Russian State Duma who voted for Russia's recognition of the independence of the LDPR. Of the 347 People's Deputies registered in the hall, 322 voted in favor, 3 abstained, and 22 did not vote.

The draft decree "On approving proposals for Application of personal special economic and other restrictive measures (sanctions)" provides:

  • asset freeze;
  • ban on entry into Ukraine;
  • ban on participation in the privatization and lease of state property;
  • cancellation or suspension of special permits for using subsoil;
  • ban on transactions in securities;
  • ban on purchasing land plots.

Context. Recall: On February 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the recognition of the independence of the DPR and LPR. At the same time, the specific boundaries of the quasi-state formations were not given. Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov found it difficult to answer this question on the afternoon of February 22, saying that Russia had recognized the DPR and LPR within the borders they declared themselves in back in 2014. On February 22, Russia changed its mind and recognized the so-called ORDLO republics within the administrative borders of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

The United States, Britain, and Germany responded to the Kremlin's actions with sanctions.
