Sanctions for the elections: Japan introduces a new package of sanctions against the Luhansk and Donetsk People's Republics

The new sanctions package is a list of 14 organizations and 26 individuals who in one way or another related to holding elections in the self-proclaimed Luhansk and Donetsk People's Republics. The assets of the entities located on the territory of Japan will be frozen.

Recall that in September, Japan imposed sanctions against the state-owned banks of state-owned banks of Russia: Gazprombank, Sberbank, VTB, Rosselkhozbank and Vnesheconombank.

As in September, Tokyo considers "active steps to peacefully resolve the crisis in Ukraine" as the official condition for lifting the sanctions.

At the same time, Yoshihide Suga, the Prime Minister of Japan, believes that an additional package of sanctions should not affect the planned visit of Vladimir Putin to the country. About this meeting, Russia and Japan agreed in November, but in connection with the complicated relations between the states the meeting has not yet taken place.
