Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has signed a decree banning coal exports to Ukraine, as well as pipe imports from Ukraine, according to media reports.

Starting from June 1, exports of the products listed in the decree including certain oil products will require a special permit.

“A few days ago, the Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers took another unfriendly step towards our country, expanding the list of Russian goods prohibited for import into Ukraine. Under these conditions, we have to defend our interests and take retaliatory measures,” Medvedev was quoted as saying by Russian news outlet Interfax.
