Kiev’s new anti-Russian sanctions violate Ukrainians’ rights to information — Kremlin

Having expanded its anti-Russian sanctions Kiev once again violated the Ukrainians’ rights to information, Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday, reports TASS.

"It [the anti-Russian sanctions expansion] is yet another step in a chain of many others that violate Ukrainian people’s right to receive information they want to know," he told journalists.

He said it is "yet another manifestation of unfriendly, shortsighted policy towards Russia." In his words, the news sanctions reveal "who can be behind the situation when we see the Minsk agreements being stalled."

Moscow is not ready yet to specify its possible retaliatory measures against new Ukraine’s sanctions, but bears in mind the reciprocity principle, according to Peskov.

"We are monitoring the situation rather carefully, and certainly, we keep in mind the reciprocity principle," Peskov said.
