EU diplomats have agreed to impose new sanctions on Russia


According to unnamed diplomats from EU countries, new sanctions should be imposed on several high-ranking Russian officials.

EU foreign ministers agreed in Brussels on Monday to impose further sanctions on Russia for the detention and subsequent imprisonment of opposition politician Alexei Navalny. They reported the news agencies AFP and Reuters before the official end of Monday’s negotiations of the EU Foreign Affairs Council.

According to unnamed diplomats from EU countries, new sanctions should be imposed on several high-ranking Russian officials. However, diplomats have not yet spoken of any specific currencies. However, the sanctions should allegedly concern the head of the Russian Committee of Inquiry, which deals with all serious crimes, as well as the director of the prison administration, the director of the Russian National Guard and the Attorney General.

The foreign ministers reached a “political agreement” on the adoption of new targeted sanctions, with the head of European diplomacy Josep Borrell tasked with drawing up and drafting a list of names of Russian officials to be targeted.

However, according to AFP, there is no Russian oligarch on the extended sanctions list. The last time the EU imposed sanctions on Russia last year was after poisoning Alexei Navalny.
