The European Union intends to freeze the assets of five people responsible for the conduct of presidential elections in Russia in the annexed Crimea. This in his Twitter wrote the Brussels correspondent of Radio Liberty Ricard Jozviak.

"The EU intends to freeze assets and ban visas for five people who are responsible for organizing the presidential elections in Crimea in March 2008. EU ministers will approve the sanctions in mid-May," the journalist said.

According to him, they will be added to the list of sanctions, which already contain 150 people and 38 organizations.

Note that the election of the Russian president was held on March 18, the fourth anniversary of the illegal annexation of Crimea. Vladimir Putin won by receiving 56.2 million votes, or 76.66%, after processing 99% of the protocols.

We recall that on the night of April 14, the United States, Britain and France struck at Syrian military facilities associated with chemical weapons. Countries have resorted to military intervention, since the Syrian government, the Russian Federation and Iran are responsible for the alleged chemical attack in the city of the Douma.

Earlier, the US imposed sanctions against 24 Russian businessmen and officials, whose fortune exceeds $ 1 billion. It is noted that the new sanctions relate to the possible intervention of Moscow in the US presidential election in 2016.
