Note: the link on the FINMA page to the SECO Ukraine page does not work – Mr. Watchlist had to find the words in German for Sanctions and Ukraine to find the actual page with the updated files. It appears that SECO moved things around on their website. I will try to verify the various sanctions files over the next few days.
