EU set to announce wide-ranging sanctions on Russia

The report said the measures that would need to be signed by EU foreign ministers would go a significant distance from measures announced by the US and Boris Johnson’s Russia sanctions.

In response to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to recognize self-declared republics in Donetsk, the European Union will impose asset freezes and travel restrictions on 23 people, three banks and a notorious Internet “troll factory” in St. Luhansk as independent states.

The Guardian reported that the bloc is also expected to approve the 351 members of the Russian State Duma, who voted for the recognition of the two regions.

The Russian government will also see further restrictions on its ability to raise funds on EU financial markets. EU officials are taking measures to ban trade between the two Russian-controlled regions in eastern Ukraine, mirroring earlier sanctions on Crimea in 2014.

“Everybody seems to be on the ship to adopt the sanctions,” said an EU diplomat.
