The ambassadors of the European Union have approved sanctions against members of the private military company Wagner, Radio Liberty journalist Rikard Jozwiak reports on Twitter.

"Eu [ambassadors] have today decided to green light sanctions against the Wagner group. It will also add 3 [people] associated with the group on its human rights sanction regime, 1 person on its Libya listings, 3 on its Ukraine list and 2 [people] & 3 entities on its Syria list. All from Russia," Jozwiak writes.

It is worth noting that the EU will impose sanctions on two Russians and three Russian organizations for the first time under the sanctions regime against Syria.

As it was reported, on November 25 the European Parliament has adopted a resolution condemning Wagner private military company for human rights violations and other crimes in conflict zones.

The resolution states that the Wagner Group is present in many conflicts around the world, notably in Ukraine, Syria, Sudan, Mozambique, Libya, the Central African Republic and Venezuela, and the European Parliament calls on the EC to impose sanctions on it.
