The party, whose number one member is Nadiya Savchenko, narrowed the list to 35 people and promised to pass it through official channels to the embassies of the US and the EU, as well as to the representative office of the European Commission. ‘Fatherland’ stated it would seek recognition of the list and imposing personal sanctions on anyone who included in it.
