    The Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers will pass two decrees on Wednesday that are considered a reflective response to Moscow’s decision to introduce a food embargo and drop Kiev from the free trade zone on January 1, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said.

    KIEV (Sputnik) – Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Tuesday signed a law that allows the country’s Cabinet of Ministers to introduce economic sanctions against Russia in response to Moscow’s decision on the free trade zone agreement and a food embargo.

    “Today [Wednesday], the Cabinet of Ministers will pass two decrees in regard to counteractions against the illegal activities by the Russian Federation. The first decree is a ban on the import of goods from Russia into Ukraine’s customs territory. The second decree is the placement of import tariffs on Russian goods,” Yatsenyuk said during a ministry meeting.
