Date: April 19, 2024 Time: 01:59:40

The European Union formally approved this Friday a new package of sanctions against Russia, one day after two years of the invasion of Ukraine. This package includes the largest group of measures in a single batch, in addition to sanctions on Chinese companies.

In total, 194 names will join the sanctioned list, according to the Council of the EU in a statement, so that it will have more than 2,000 members. Among them, the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, and the Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, sanctioned since the start of the war.

In the thirteenth package of sanctions, the EU mainly included people related to the Russian military network (such as some involved with the supply of weapons from North Korea to Moscow), judges, authorities of occupied zones, especially linked to the deportation . of children, in addition to companies that have participated in the supply of weapons. The restrictive measures consist of freezing any assets they may have in the EU and prohibiting their access to community territory.

These are the sanctions

Sectoral sanctions focus on combating sanctions circumvention. It has been decided to add 27 new entities to the regulation that prohibits the export of dual-use goods (civil and military). Up to 17 are from Russia and ten from other countries: four from China, one from Turkey, one from Thailand, one from Kazakhstan, one from Serbia, one from Sri Lanka and one from India.

They are above all firms that participate in procurement networks for components of unmanned aerial vehicles or drones that end up in the Russian military complex and, subsequently, on the Ukrainian battlefield.
