EU extended sanctions against Russia over Ukraine

The European Union has extended individual sanctions against Russia over Ukraine. This was told in the EU Council, RIA Novosti writes.

The measures will last another six months, until March 15, 2021. The sanctions will affect “individuals and organizations that continue to undermine or threaten the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine.” So, they provide for travel restrictions and freezing of assets in the European Union.

The alleged extension of European sanctions against Russia became known on September 9. Six more countries have joined the EU sanctions against Moscow: Montenegro, Albania, members of the European free trade zone Norway and Iceland, as well as Ukraine and Georgia. The EU also hoped that Turkey would join the restrictive measures this year, but Ankara refused.

In June, the merger officially extended for six months – until January 31, 2021 – the effect of economic sanctions related to the banking, financial and energy sectors of Russia. It was decided to extend the ban for European companies on investments in Crimea and the import of goods from the peninsula until June 23, 2021.

The EU, the United States and a number of other countries have introduced anti-Russian sanctions due to the entry of Crimea into Russia in 2014 and the exacerbation of the situation in southeastern Ukraine. Economic restrictions are regularly extended.
