The corresponding decree says it is aimed "at countering unfriendly actions against Russian citizens and legal entities from Ukraine and at normalizing bilateral relations." At the same time, the Russian government reserves the right to cancel the special economic measures introduced if Ukraine cancels the restrictive measures imposed on Russian citizens and legal entities.
