Borrell: New sanctions on those supporting Russia

European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell announced on Wednesday, during a joint press conference with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, that the bloc will be proposing new sanctions on individuals and entities that continue to support Russia.

"This list, [counting] more than 1,300 people and entities, targets key decision makers, oligarchs, senior military officials, and propagandists responsible for undermining Ukraine's territorial integrity," Borrell mentioned.

Borrell detailed that these individuals will be those "involved in Russia's occupation and illegal annexation of Ukraine," alongside "individuals who organized and facilitated the sham referenda" in the occupied areas. Moreover, the EU plans to sanction more people in Russia's defense sector, as well as those "who support Russian forces by providing army equipment, including missiles and fighter aircraft," Borrell shared.
