Next week, EU Foreign Ministers will be discussing (inter alia) the security situation in Ukraine, including whether new sanctions should be imposed against Russia as part of a coordinated action with the USA. The measures (if imposed) will reportedly target individuals and entities involved in Russian acts against Ukraine in the Sea of Azov; namely, the seizure of 3 Ukrainian naval vessels and the continued detention of 24 Ukrainian sailors in the Kerch Strait by Russian authorities.
