BRUSSELS, November 17. /TASS/. The European Union will continue the development of trade and visa restrictions against Russia within the framework of non-recognition of the Crimean Republic’s reunification with Russia, a European source told TASS on Monday on the sidelines of a meeting of the EU foreign ministers.
The EU Council has approved the decision to continue the development of the strategy of non-recognition of Crimea’s accession, within which the European Commission and EU foreign political service should work out additional trade and visa measures, the diplomat said.
The source declined to specify what other measures the European Commission could propose, as the EU Council had launched the strategy development in June this year. By the present time, the EU has already prohibited within this strategy the issuing of visas to Crimean residents with Russian passports, banned the entry of its merchant ships into Crimean ports, as well as banned the Crimean products’ imports by Europe without the customs clearance of the Ukrainian customs agencies.
The European Commission also could not answer the TASS inquiry about which Crimean products were supplied to the EU member countries in 2013.
