EU to impose more sanction on Russia.

BRUSSELS, July 19 (KUNA) -- The EU Saturday published in its Official Journal the legal basis to expand sanctions against persons and bodies threatening Ukraine's sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence.

The notice in the Office Journal noted that the leaders of the 28-member bloc at their summit last Wednesday agreed to expand sanction, "with a view to targeting entities, including from the Russian Federation, that are materially or financially supporting actions undermining or threatening Ukraine's sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence." The EU is expected to adopt the new list of sanctions including from Russia by the end of July.

Currently 72 Russian and Ukrainian individuals involved in actions against Ukraine[euro]o's territorial integrity are subject to a travel ban and an asset freeze in the EU. (end) nk.tg
