Besides the sanctions for the Kerch Bridge, the EU is going to approve the restrictions against people involved in the cyber attacks on Bundestag in 2015. Jozwiak also noted that despite the fact that anti-Belarusian sanctions are still blocked by Cyprus, there is a progress in this issue.

EU sanctions on Belarus are still blocked but at least some progress as the sanctions on those responsible for the building of the Kerch Bridge and those responsible for the cyberattacks on the Bundestag in 2015 will be green lighted in the coming weeks,” Jozwiak reported.
