“Their assets in Ukraine are blocked, their properties will be used for our defense,” Zelenskiy said in a video address.

The sanctioned companies mainly engage in the transportation of goods, vehicle rental and chemical production, according to the list published by the Security and National Defense Council of Ukraine.

The list includes Russian potash fertilizer producer and exporter Uralkali, state-owned Belarusian potash producer Belaruskali, Belarusian Railways, as well as Russia’s VTB-Leasing and Gazprombank Leasing both deal with transport hire.

Ukraine has sanctioned hundreds of Russian and Belarusian individuals and firms since the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February last year.
