EU countries to decide on which sanctions to impose against Ukraine – EC spokesperson
The European Commission cannot yet say exactly which sanctions will be imposed against those responsible for the violence and deaths in Ukraine, and this decision will be taken by EU member states.
European Commission spokesperson Alejandro Ulzurrun de Asanza y Munoz said this at a briefing in Brussels on Wednesday.
When asked which sanctions could be imposed against Ukraine, he said that these would be "restrictive measures."
"The EU has basic principles that can be applied, a set of tools. A meeting of the [Political and Security] Committee is currently being held, so I cannot specify which sanctions will be imposed," he said.
He also said that the question of which sanctions, when and against whom will be applied would be resolved by EU member states.
He also confirmed that the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement remained on the table.
