The countries of the European Union (EU) gave the green light this Wednesday to a new package of sanctions against Russia, the eleventh since it invaded Ukraine, focused on avoiding circumvention through third countries of restrictive measures already imposed.
In addition, it includes more sanctions against individuals, as reported by the Swedish presidency of the Council of the Union via Twitter.
The ambassadors of the Twenty-seven to the EU, meeting in Brussels, made the decision unanimously.
“I welcome the political agreement on our eleventh package of sanctions,” said the president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, through the same social network.
In the opinion of German politics, “will deal a new blow to the war machine of (Russian President Vladimir) Putin with stricter export restrictions, targeting entities that support the Kremlin.”
