The European Union may impose sanctions on Russian deputies, officials and those involved in referendums in the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, as well as in the Kherson region and the territories of the Zaporozhye region. This is reported by EUobserver, citing sources.
According to an insider, they began to prepare new sanctions because of the fear of new lands joining Russia after the announcement of the results of the referendums. The publication wrote that the sanctions will be applied after the vote. In addition, the source is sure that Europe “is forced to act more creatively” in developing new restrictions.
“We already have a full set of oligarchs and everyone who works in political and defense structures <...>“, said an unnamed official.
He also added that at the moment there are “important people” in Russia against whom restrictions could be introduced (limitation of production, sale and export of goods. – Ed.)no more.
Earlier, the media reported that a new package of EU anti-Russian sanctions could affect oil price restrictions, as well as the IT sector. They added that the most radical views are held by Poland and the Baltic countries. They demanded tougher sanctions against Russia.
