BRUSSELS, September 02. /ITAR-TASS/. The European Commission (EC) does not comment on media leaks about possible details of additional sanctions against Russia over Ukraine, its press service told ITAR-TASS on Tuesday in comments on a report by Reuters.
Decisions about restricted measures against Russia are still underway, the press service said.
A European Union summit on August 30 instructed the European Commission to prepare new sanction proposals amid escalating tensions in Ukraine.
Earlier, Reuters reported that the European Commission had allegedly proposed to expand the set of sanctions against Russia, restricting exports of goods that can have both military and civilian use and additionally tightening access of Russian companies to the foreign capital market. It also said the European Commission “suggested to EU ambassadors on Monday banning Russian government-owned companies, not just banks, from borrowing in EU”.
