The head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, announced that the European Union approved the seventh package of sanctions against Russia.

In addition to the new restrictions, the EC proposed to extend all sanctions against Russia until the end of January 2023 and to add the clarification that sanctions must not interfere with food supplies.

The EU approved the seventh package of sanctions against Russia

The EU ambassadors approved the seventh package of sanctions against Russia the day before. The press ironically calls it "the sixth and a half", since the EU has almost no serious sanctions left.

The new package includes a partial embargo on gold, the blacklisting of 55 natural and legal persons, and an expansion of the list of dual-use goods whose importation is prohibited.

The head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, previously said that in addition to the new package, he will present his proposals to the European Council for the inclusion of "a greater number of natural and legal persons" on the list of sanctions. They face an asset freeze and an EU entry ban.

The list has not yet been officially released. Reuters sources said that Sberbank would be included in the list of companies.

According to the EU Observer, the new restrictions will affect the mayor of Moscow, Sergei Sobyanin, the head of Rostec, Sergei Chemezov, and others. Several shipping and arms companies, the Yunarmiya movement and the Russkiy Mir Foundation may also be targeted for sanctions.
