EU agrees sanctions on Russians re Sea of Azov

As foreshadowed, EU Foreign Ministers agreed yesterday (18 February) to add a number of people to its Russia sanctions list in response to recent events in the Sea of Azov (the seizure of 3 Ukrainian naval vessels and continued detention of 24 Ukrainian sailors in the Kerch Strait).

They will be added to the EU’s Russia sanctions list targeting those “undermining the territorial integrity, sovereignty or independence of Ukraine” when the legal measures are published in the EU Official Journal in the next few days.
