Ambassadors of EU member countries have endorsed the continuation of sanctions against Russia by six months. These measures include bans on visa issuance and the asset freeze for 177 individuals and 48 entities. Rikard Jozwiak, the Brussels-based correspondent of Radio Liberty reported that on Twitter.

On June 21, the EU Council extended the sanctions against Russia that were implemented as a response to the occupation of Ukraine's Crimean peninsula. On July 12, the same authority prolonged the sanctions aimed at certain branches of economy of the Russian Federation until January 31, 2022. The decision was made after the eventual assessment of the current status of implementation of Minsk agreements.
