The European Union has officially imposed restrictive measures against 8 people from the Russian Federation for violating Ukraine’s sovereignty.
This is stated in a statement on the website of the Council of the EU .
“The EU Council today decided to impose restrictive measures on an additional eight people for actively supporting actions and policies that undermine or threaten Ukraine’s territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence,” the statement said.
In particular, the sanctions list includes individuals, including law enforcement officials – judges, prosecutors and security officials responsible for enforcing Russian law in the illegally occupied Crimea and Sevastopol.
“These individuals made biased decisions in politically motivated cases, and persecuted and oppressed opponents of the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol,” the statement added.
As a result, EU restrictive measures against Ukraine’s territorial integrity have now been applied against a total of 185 individuals and 48 companies and institutions. All sanctioned individuals and legal entities are frozen assets, as well as a ban on entry into the European Union.
