Ukraine to ban imports of Russian oil products – PM

Ukraine plans to ban imports of
Russian oil products, and to remove import duties on second-hand
cars except for Russian ones, Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk
said in a televised cabinet meeting on Wednesday.

The announcement is the latest move in an ongoing trade war
between Russia and Ukraine that follows Russia’s annexation of
Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.

“I am asking the Ministry of Economy to prepare a mechanism
for banning the purchase of petroleum products from the country
of the aggressor, which is the Russian Federation,” the prime
minister said.
