LVIV, Ukraine (Reuters) – Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Monday called for new international sanctions against Russia over its invasion of Ukraine, proposing a boycott of Russian oil and other Russian exports and a halt to exports to Russia.

Western sanctions imposed over Russia’s military attack have already isolated Russia on a scale unprecedented in such a large economy.

“If the invasion continues and Russia has not abandoned its plans against Ukraine, then a new sanctions package is needed… for the sake of peace,” he said in a video address, noting in particular a boycott of Russian oil and oil products.

“Boycott imports to Russia – if they don’t obey civilized rules, they shouldn’t receive goods and services from civilization – let the war feed them,” he said.
