“It is obvious that the Ukrainians have property in Russia. But I don’t think it will touch ordinary citizens. Because it will be more touch politicians who actively vote against the Russian Federation. Of course, there is already extensive list of those who are not entrance to Russia. So I think that in the future there will be some further sanctions. It’s hard to say who has some assets in Russia”, – said Bernatsky.

We have a lot of lawsuits related to violation of rights of Ukrainian citizens in the Crimea. In addition, a lot of lawsuits in the ECHR. Therefore, Russia is forced to respond,” – said Lutsenko.
