Kuleba waits for a new package of EU sanctions until February 24

Feb 2, 2023

Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba believes that the European Union should complete the procedure for imposing sanctions before the anniversary of the full-scale Russian invasion.

He said this during a joint meeting of the European Commission and the Ukrainian government in Kyiv, reports European Truth.

Kuleba noted that the 10th package should be introduced as soon as possible, no later than February 24, 2023.


He also said that Kyiv conveyed to Brussels its expectations from the new sanctions package. In particular, Kuleba believes the inclusion of "blocking sanctions against the production of Russian missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles" is mandatory. According to him, Kyiv has provided specific proposals for restrictions that should further limit Russia's ability to produce missiles and drones.

"We expect sanctions against the nuclear sector, and personal sanctions against Russian propagandists, and Ukraine has specific proposals for that as well," he added.

Kuleba noted that Ukraine believes that the EU does not use every opportunity to do so. "We do not find an answer as to why the EU does not activate the global sanctions regime because of human rights violations," the minister explained.
