Putin’s decree posted today on the Kremlin’s website says that the decision was made “in response to Ukraine’s unfriendly actions, related to the introduction of restrictive measures against citizens and legal entities of the Russian Federation,” as well as to “protect national interests.”

The decree states that the measures can be canceled if Ukraine revokes its sanctions against Russian nationals and companies.

Earlier this summer, Putin extended an embargo on the import of certain food products from Ukraine until the end of 2019.
