EU ambassadors approved 13th package of sanctions against Russia

Feb 21, 2024

European Union ambassadors have approved a new package of sanctions against Russia.

This was stated by Radio Liberty correspondent Rickard Jozwiak on X (Twitter).

"EU ambassadors have just given green light to the EU’s 13th Russia sanctions package. Should be published just before the 24 February anniversary," he said.

According to Reuters sources in the EU, the new package covers about 200 legal entities and individuals but does not contain new sectoral measures.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen welcomed the ambassadors' agreement on the 13th package of sanctions against Russia.

"I welcome the agreement on our 13th sanctions package against Russia. We must keep degrading Putin's war machine. With 2000 listings in total, we keep the pressure high on the Kremlin. We are also further cutting Russia’s access to drones," she wrote on X (Twitter).
