BRUSSELS, November 24. /TASS/. The European Commission (EC) and the European External Action Service have not prepared “additional names” of leaders of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR) due to be included in the EU blacklist, spokesperson Maja Kocijancic said on Monday.

On November 17, the EU foreign ministers instructed the EC and the EU Common Foreign and Security Policy to submit “additional names” of leaders of DPR and LPR to include them in a blacklist by December 1.

The blacklist may include at least 10 names of Ukrainian citizens. At present, the list includes 119 invididuals, including Russia’s leadership, representatives of Russian power-yielding 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.

Restrictive economic measures towards Russian financial, defense and oil enterprises are introduced till September 2015.

EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini reiterated her last week’s statement saying the EU sanctions would not work on their own.

The sanctions should be accompanied by the reforms in Ukraine and the dialogue with Russia that must be reset, she said.

Earlier, Russian Ambassador to the EU Vladimir Chizhov told TASS, “The EU is objectively close to exhaustion of its sanction potential. This is so in terms of political will and their economic capabilities."
