Individual the European Union has extended sanctions against Russia
BRUSSELS, September 13 — RIA Novosti. The European Union has extended individual sanctions against Russia, reported the press service of the EU Council.
Sanctions will be in effect until March 15, 2019. They include the freezing of assets and travel restrictions.
In Moscow, commenting on this step, noted that Russia is following its own way and to ignore sanctions will not.
In March 2014 the EU imposed restrictions against individual Russians and Ukrainians, whom he accused of “undermining the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine.” Since then, they have regularly extended for six months.
While the sanctions list is constantly expanded at the expense of citizens of Ukraine, the leaders of the breakaway Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics and representatives of the militia, and by Russian politicians, public figures and legal entities. Now, the list includes 155 people and 44 entities.
Moscow, in turn, has repeatedly rejected accusations of meddling in the Affairs of Ukraine and said that talking to her in the language of sanctions is counterproductive.
