The European Union extended economic sanctions against Russia
BRUSSELS, 21 Dec — RIA Novosti. The Council of the European Union extended economic sanctions against Russia, said the Council.
Term limits, which was due to expire in January, was extended until July 31, 2018.
The European Union imposed restrictive measures against Moscow in 2014 — against the backdrop of the reunification of the Crimea with Russia and the situation in the Donbass. Speech, in particular, on personal sanctions against citizens of Russia and Ukraine, which Brussels accuses of undermining the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the Republic. The black list also includes the legal entity.
EU restrictions apply to the Crimea. For example, citizens and companies from EU countries can’t import products from Crimea and invest in the economy of the Peninsula.
Russia has repeatedly stressed that it is not a party to domestic conflict, and talking to her in the language of sanctions is counterproductive. Moscow retaliated by banning the import of certain food products from the EU.
