Great Britain and Canada have announced that they are imposing economic sanctions on the Ukraine from today and yesterday Germany announced that it is taking similar steps. A Rosbalt correspondent was informed of this by the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry. According to official sources this move was made on the basis of recommendations from the FATF (Financial Action Task Force). Western experts believe that the Ukraine is continuing to launder money in the banks of Europe and North America.
As the Rosbalt correspondent was informed by the press office of the Ukrainian government, Kiev is hoping that this will be a temporary measure and that the Ukraine will succeed in disproving allegations of money laundering.
