The European Council has instructed the head of the European External Relations and Security Policy Service Josep Borrell and the European Commission to prepare new sanctions against Russia. This was reported by the press service of the European Council.

"Regarding the strengthening of our resilience, the European Council stresses the need for a firm and coordinated response by the EU and its Member States to any further malign, illegal and disruptive activity by Russia, making full use of all instruments at the EU’s disposal, and ensuring coordination with partners. To this end, the European Council also invites the Commission and the High Representative to present options for additional restrictive measures, including economic sanctions," the statement reads.
