The Economic Development and Trade Ministry will annul sanctions imposed on them, the press service of the ministry has said.

"On February 23, SBU told the ministry that primary information about infringements committed by importers and their contractors was partially proved.

"The implication of companies in causing damage to the interests of Ukraine was not proved.

"SBU proposed to the ministry to annul special sanctions imposed on 15 importers of fuel and their contractors," the ministry said.

In particular, the sanctions will be lifted from NP-Trading, Naftoproduct-Trading, Violana-Tek, Systems Logistics Management, Gallon-Group, SVG Plus, Eurostandard Avtogaz, Nadiya, Olan, Rod-Nik, West Trading & Marketing Oil, Restimpex System, Tarone Trade, Ameralda Trading Limited and Danier Holdings

As reported, the sanctions were imposed based on SBU information that importers accumulated funds on offshore accounts and partially used them to finance militants in the occupied areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
