BRUSSELS, November 28. /TASS/. The Council of the European Union on Friday approved the introduction of fresh sanctions against 13 representatives of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics and five organizations, the Council’s press service said.
The names of the new sanctions targets to be added to the list of those subject to asset freezes and travel bans will be published on Saturday, the Council said.
On November 27, the Committee of Permanent Representatives in the European Union agreed the list of 18 entities and representatives of the Donetsk and Luhansk republics subject to sanctions. But the final decision on expansion of the sanctions was still to be approved by the Council of the European Union in written form.
The EU blacklist includes now 132 Russian and Ukrainian citizens, and 28 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 Donetsk and Lugansk republics. The entities are subject to a freeze of their assets in the European Union.
