Countries who aim to enter the EU, - Albania and Montenegro, a member of the European Economic Area Norway, and Ukraine, joined the sanctions against Russia in connection with the situation in the Donbas. This was reported by the Voice of People Today.
The Declaration deals with restrictive measures in response to “actions that undermine or threaten the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine.”
In this case it is a decision of November 20, 2017, which amends Council decision 2014/145 / CFSP. Thus, to the list of persons subject to restrictive measures, the elected governor of Sevastopol, Dmitry Ovsyannikov, was added. The act of this was published on November 21, 2017 in the “Official Journal” of the EU.
As reported in the communiqué on Monday on the website of the Council of the European Union, Albania, Norway, Ukraine and Montenegro “will ensure compliance of their national policies with the adopted decision of the Council.”
As it was reported earlier Donald Trump, the US President approved the new sanctions against Russia due to the violation of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF Treaty).
The Commerce Department of the US will assume the measures towards the Russian companies that provide the technologies to the developers of the forbidden arms. The department called such measures the intention to change economic plans of the Russian government. The Commerce Department will 'punish Russian companies that provided the technologies to develop a new arm that is forbidden by the treaty'.
