The European Union’s 10th package of sanctions against russia over its war against Ukraine will include new restrictions, and will also target russian propagandists, as Kyiv requested, ukrinform.net reported.
“russia must pay for the destruction and bloodshed. In the coming days, we will propose a tenth package of sanctions. First, we will impose sanctions on a number of military and political leaders. But we will also target putin’s propagandists because their lies are poisoning people in russia and abroad… We are going after them,” the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen said in a statement.
She noted that the leadership of the EU heard the messages very well during the recent visit to Kyiv, when President Zelensky insisted on such a step.
