In particular, Ukraine imposed sanctions on a number of Russian media. The country also banned access to social networks VKontakte, Odnoklassniki and Yandex and Mail.ru services.
"Blocking of social networks, search engines, mail services and news web sites goes against our common understanding of freedom of expression and freedom of the media. Moreover, such blanket bans are out of line with the principle of proportionality," Jagland said as quoted in a press release.
The sanctions were also imposed against such Russian TV channels as Zvezda, TVC, NTV Plus, RenTV, RBC.
Commenting on the decision of the Ukrainian authorities, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Moscow regarded it as another manifestation of an unfriendly and short-sighted policy against Russia.
