KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine will impose sanctions on Russian oligarchs including Oleg Deripaska, following the lead of penalties ordered by the United States, President Petro Poroshenko said on Tuesday.
A new round of U.S. sanctions, announced on Friday, target officials and business people around Russian President Vladimir Putin, in response to alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.
