BRUSSELS, November 27. /TASS/. The European Union will impose sanctions against 13 organizations and representatives of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics (DPR and LPR), a European diplomatic source told TASS on Thursday.
The Council of the European Union is due to announce a formal decision on expanding the blacklist on Friday, while the names of particular individuals and entities are expected to be published in the EU Official Journal on November 29.
“Today the Committee of Permanent Representatives in the European Union (COPERER) agreed the list. The Council will make a formal decision tomorrow in a written procedure,” the source said. “The names will be most probably published on Saturday, November 29,” he added.
The current blacklist includes 119 persons and 23 entities. The persons, who are subject to asset freezes and visa bans, include Russia’s leadership, Crimea’s authorities, several Ukrainian politicians who oppose Kiev, and practically all leaders of the DPR and LPR. The entities are subject to a freeze of their assets in the European Union.
The European Union also plans to expand investment restrictions on Crimea, the source added.
