According to Jozwiak, the EU will extend the sanctions against 175 people and 44 organizations for another six months.
“EU ambassadors will tomorrow green light the visa bans and asset freezes on 175 people and 44 entities that the block believes have undermined the territorial integrity of Ukraine,” he wrote.
On June 18, 2020, the Court of the European Union extended the sanctions against the Russian Federation for the annexation of the Ukrainian peninsula Crimea.
As we reported, six non-EU countries joined the European Council's decision to extend sanctions against Russia over the annexation of Crimea. These are the candidate countries for accession to the EU (Montenegro and Albania), members of the European Free Trade Association (Norway and Iceland), as well as Ukraine and Georgia.
