The implementation of the draft resolution will ensure the application of measures in response to Russia extending trade bans and restrictions on Ukraine, ensuring the protection of national interests and security of Ukraine.

The ban on the import of Russian goods into the customs territory of Ukraine has been in force since 2016.

The Ukrainian embargo applies to a whole list of Russian goods and products, including meat, fish, coffee, tea, grain, caramel, confectionery and candy, beer, cigarettes, vodka, alcohol, pet food, railcars, locomotives, cars, tractors, paper, detergents, etc.
