The European Commission today proposed a new package of sanctions against Russia.
According to the press service of the commission, today’s sanctions package will introduce a new ban on the import of Russian gold, while strengthening controls over the export of dual-use and advanced technologies. Thus, it will strengthen the coherence of EU sanctions with those of G7 partners. It would also increase reporting requirements to strengthen asset freezes.
At the same time, the European Commission emphasizes that EU sanctions are in no way aimed at trade in agricultural products between third countries and Russia.
The European Commission also proposes to extend the current EU sanctions for six months – until the next review at the end of January 2023.
