EU ready to impose more Russia sanctions if needed - Von der Leyen

The European Union is prepared to introduce additional sanctions against Russia as a response to "any further aggressions" towards Ukraine, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said on Tuesday.

Von der Leyen took to Twitter to write that the "EU continues to fully support Ukraine in the face of the Russian aggression," and added it will respond in coordination with its partners.

Multiple outlets previously reported that the United States is preparing a wide set of measures against Russia meant to deter Moscow's invasion into Ukraine. US President Joe Biden and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin started the scheduled online meeting earlier today.
