Ambassadors of the EU have upheld the introduction of sanctions against individuals and entities responsible for construction of the Kerch bridge. Rikard Jozwiak, reporter of Radio Liberty in Brussels posted that on Twitter.
According to him, the restrictions will concern two individuals and four companies responsible for the construction. However, he did not reveal actual names. Jozwiak added that the decision will be officially confirmed later this week.
The bridge over Kerch strait was opened in May 2018. It connects the occupied Crimea and Russia's Krasnodar Krai. In July 2018, the EU imposed sanctions against companies involved in the building process. Then, six Russian companies faced various economic restrictions due to these sanctions.
Earlier, the EU could not impose sanctions against Russia because Cyprus blocked the approval of this process, demanding to impose sanctions against Turkey.
