The ambassadors of the European Union have supported the decision to extend the "Crimean package” of sanctions against Russia for another year. This was announced by the Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the European Union Mykola Tochynskyi on Twitter.

It should be noted that the "Crimean" sanctions against Russia, imposed for the illegal annexation of the peninsula, will expire on June 23, 2020.

"EU unity and solidarity destroyed Russia’s desperate efforts to use COVID-19 for lifting sanctions imposed on RF (the Russian Federation - 112 International) for ongoing aggression against Ukraine. «Crimean package» will be prolonged for another year. Grateful to our European partners for their unwavering support of Ukraine," Tochynskyi wrote.

It is worth noting that these restrictive measures were introduced in June 2014, and they proceed for a year. The last such decision was made on June 12, 2019.

As we reported earlier, U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell stated that lawmakers of the U.S. Congress are considering introducing new sanctions against the companies involved in servicing the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.
