The head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, announced the 9th package of sanctions against Russia.

According to the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, this package provides:

  • imposing sanctions on almost 200 individuals and legal entities, as well as 3 Russian banks;
  • limiting the access of the Russian Federation to drones through potential suppliers from third countries, such as, for example, Iran;
  • new export controls, including dual-use items – including certain chemical components, nerve agents, electronics and software that can be used for military purposes;
  • removal of four more propaganda channels from the air

“This list [200 физических и юридических лиц, в который входят представители вооруженных сил, депутаты российского парламента и предприятия оборонно-промышленного комплекса] covers key figures in Russia’s brutal, deliberate missile strikes on civilians,” von der Leyen said in a video posted on Twitter.

In addition, the European Commission proposes additional restrictions against the energy and mining sectors, including a ban on investment in new mining capacity in Russia.

“We are also opposing the Russian propaganda machine, proposing to take four more channels off the air and proposing more economic measures against the Russian energy and mining sector,” the head of the EC said.

European Commission Vice President Josep Borrell said the latest measures are a direct consequence of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s weaponization of winter.

“He wants to cut off electricity, heating and water supply for millions of civilians across Ukraine. We are responding with the 9th package of sanctions against those who play an important role in this brutal war,” he wrote on Twitter.

Now the new package of sanctions must be agreed by the member states in the Council of the EU.

Sanctions against Russia: details

At the end of May 2022, EU leaders agreed to introduce a ban on the export of Russian oil.

On December 3, the Council of the European Union decided to set the ceiling price for oil exported from Russia at USD 60 per barrel.

Commenting on the decision to cap the price of Russian oil at $60 per barrel, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted that this is a weak position.
