On Friday the European Union will prolong sanctions against incumbent Ukrainian Member of Parliament Serhiy Kliuyev for another four months, while sanctions against former Education Minister Dmytro Tabachnyk and former Justice Minister Olena Lukash are to be prolonged for 12 more months.


Former President Viktor Yanukovych's younger son Viktor Yanukovych Junior, who drowned in Lake Baikal in Russia late in March 2015, was excluded from the blacklist, a European Council source told UNIAN's own correspondent in Brussels after the issue had been discussed at the technical level.

"The decision will be enacted on Friday by means of a [simplified written procedure called] 'silence procedure'," the source said. The act will be published in the EU Official Journal on Saturday.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the sanctions against the abovementioned allies of ex-President Yanukovych were earlier prolonged on March 6 until June 6.
