BRUSSELS, November 17. /TASS/. New economic sanctions against Russia “are not on the EU agenda,” an EU source told TASS on Monday on the sidelines of a ministerial meeting.
“Economic sanctions are out of the question at present. They are not on the EU Council agenda,” the source said.
Earlier, another European diplomat said the EU Foreign Ministers had instructed the European Commission and the Common Foreign and Security Policy to submit “additional names” of leaders of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics to include them in a blacklist by December 1.
The EU Council agreed to prepare an additional list of leaders of the self-proclaimed republics in eastern Ukraine for imposing restrictive measures towards them, the diplomat said.
The blacklist may include at least 10 names of Ukrainian citizens. At present, the list includes 119 individuals, including Russia’s leadership, representatives of Russian power-yielded structures, Russian politicians, Crimea’s regional authorities and several Ukrainian politicians, who oppose Kiev, and practically all leaders of the Donetsk and Luhansk republics. These persons are banned from entering the EU till the autumn 2015 and their financial assets to European banks are to be frozen.
