EU to extend individual sanctions in connection with Ukrainian situation in near future
The next extension of the EU's restrictive measures in connection with the situation in Ukraine is expected in the very near future, a diplomatic source in the EU institutions told Interfax in Brussels on Monday.
"This decision is made on a written procedure and can be held in the very near future," the source said.
On the remark that there is no such item on the announced agenda of the meetings of the Committee of Permanent Representatives of the EU countries on March 15 (Coreper), the source replied, "We presume that the decision is expected even before the meeting on March 15. There is a possibility that it will be adopted today."
The last time individual EU sanctions were extended on September 14, 2016. It was about the extension of restrictive measures against 149 physical and 37 legal entities whose assets are frozen in the European Union and who are prohibited from entering the EU countries.
