KYIV. July 22 (Interfax) - Ukraine's authorities intend to react to the issuance of Russian passports to the residents of Donetsk and Luhansk regions and are considering the possibility of imposing national sanctions, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Danyliuk said.
"Of course. There must be specific measures to stop this process or make it as complicated as possible. This is a violation of the Minsk Agreements, planned provocation and we will certainly not leave this without a response," Danyliuk told Interfax on Sunday evening at the elections headquarters of the Servant of the People Party, responding to the question whether Ukraine is ready to impose national sanctions over Russia's issuing passports to the residents of Donbas.
