Anti-Ukrainian sanctions of Russia

All day today, journalists ask me how can I comment on the inclusion of my last name in the list of persons against whom Russia has imposed personal sanctions. And, although I do not consider myself an enemy of the Russian people, I, as a deputy of the Ukrainian parliament, remind me of my oath of allegiance to Ukraine! That’s why I serve Ukraine sincerely, to the best of my abilities. This, among other things, also means readiness to bear all the difficulties that are associated with the sanctions imposed by the Russian government.
We, Ukrainians, have always been in favor of establishing friendly relations with all our neighbors. I’m no exception. And I think that politicians should look for what our people are looking forward too. Ensure peace and respect for each other’s sovereignty, Stop the war our citizens are suffering from, and make our country stronger.
