New EU sanctions to block Russian energy revenues - Zelensky

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated in a Telegram post on Monday evening that a new EU Russia sanctions package is being expected in the near future, aimed at slashing the energy revenues that enable the continuation of Moscow's military operations in Ukraine.

"We expect a new sanctions package from the European Union in the near future. This package should include clear steps to block Russia's energy revenues. We truly believe in this. So that the terrorist state is not given a billion euros a day for fuel," Zelensky noted.

Earlier, Ukraine's presidential aide Oleksiy Arestovich told Nikkei news in an online interview that Kiev will most likely start its counteroffensive against Moscow in late May to mid-June, enabled by the West's extensive weapons supplies to the country.
