EU ambassadors will continue to ban investment in Crimea. Radio Liberty correspondent Rikard Juzwiak wrote about this on Twitter.

"EU ambassadors will prolong the EU's Crimea investment ban by one year on 9 June," the message says.

The relevant decision must also be taken by the EU Council.

The sanctions include a ban on imports of products from Crimea and Sevastopol in the EU, investments in Crimea and Sevastopol, services related to tourism in Crimea and Sevastopol, exports of a number of goods and technologies to Crimea and Sevastopol for the transport, telecommunications and energy sectors, as well as for the oil and gas and mining industries.

Sanctions were imposed after the occupation of Crimea and the start of hostilities in Donbas in 2014.
