TEHRAN, May 29 (MNA) – Ukraine's parliament approved on Monday 50-year sanctions against Iran for baseless accusations of aiding Russia in the war.

Ukraine’s parliament on Monday approved a 50-year sanctions package against Iran for allegedly aiding Russia with weapons in its ongoing war with the neighboring country.

According to Ukrainian media, the sanctions include a complete ban on trade operations, the transit of Iranian resources, flights, and transportation in Ukraine.
