Ukraine has sanctioned Iran for 50 years for providing military equipment to Russia during its invasion.
On Tuesday, the Ukrainian parliament announced this in a Telegram post.
The sanctions include a ban on exports of “military and dual-use goods” to Iran, as well as the “suspension of economic and financial obligations in favour of Iranian residents.”
Furthermore, the sanctions prohibit Iranian aircraft from flying through Ukrainian airspace and Iranian goods from transiting through Ukrainian territory.
Russia has increased its attacks on Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv, with Iran-made Shahid drones, destroying infrastructure and killing civilians.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky had on Wednesday asked the Iranian people not to be “accomplices in Russian terror.”
He stated that his forces had shot down about 900 of more than 1,160 drones used against Ukraine, figures that have likely risen during Russia’s barrage of aerial attacks in the days since.
Iran has supplied Russia with military hardware, including the Shahed loitering munition that Russia has launched at Ukraine by the hundreds.
The U.S. and the EU have imposed sanctions against Iran for supplying Russia with these drones.
