MOSCOW, March 21. /ITAR-TASS/. At its extraordinary meeting Federation Council upper house of Russian parliament has adopted a statement over US, EU sanctions against several Russian state officials.
On Friday, the European Union has expanded the list of Russians banned from entering the EU countries from 21 to 33. The financial assets of the people from the ‘black list’ will be frozen if found in European banks. The decision about imposing economic sanctions has not been made.
The American leader specified that the new measures are imposed against Russian high-ranking officials and other people who did not belong to authorities in Moscow, but who, as Washington believes, support actions of the Russian government against Ukraine. Obama added that one Russian bank was also included in the list.
