EU on Saturday shared the details of the 10th package of sanctions against Russia for its war in Ukraine.
Some 87 individuals and 34 entities were added to the sanctions list.
Those sanctioned “are instrumental in the continuation of this brutal war, including those responsible for military activities, for political decisions, who are polluting the public space with disinformation and malicious narratives, adding to the military warfare also through information warfare,” said EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell in a statement.
“We are also targeting those involved in inhumane deportations and forced adoption of Ukrainian children to Russia, as well as those responsible for the development of drones that are targeting Ukrainian civilians and civilian infrastructure,” he added.
Borrell reiterated that the bloc will continue to support Ukraine and “increase pressure on Russia for as long as it takes.”
“Four Iranian individuals involved in the elaboration and supply of drones used by Russia against Ukraine are sanctioned,” the statement added.
EU member states approved new sanctions against Russia late Friday with new trade bans and export controls on products and technologies that can be used for civilian and military purposes.
The sanctions also have additional restrictions on countries and entities providing drones to Russia.
