The EU adopted the fourth round of sanctions against Russia, targeting the military industry, the steel industry, and the energy sector.

In addition, the EU also introduced a ban on exporting luxury goods such as expensive cars and jewelry from the EU, targeted at the Russian elite. 

It also expanded the circle of Russian oligarchs covered by previous sanctions.

The EU and the World Trade Organization (WTO) also agree that Russian goods will no longer have the same benefits that Russia has so far benefited from within the framework of WTO cooperation.

  1. Ursula v.L. – who is incidentally under fire for her mishandling of the German military – has said the EU is doubling its military assistance to Ukraine. Meanwhile, Charles Michel, the President of the European Council overseeing the EU says it is not at war with Russia.
    He apparently, arrogantly hasn’t consulted with the Russians about that.
    There is a NUPI talk tomorrow at 1500 by Mark Leonard, titled “Europe, Norway, and the Ukraine crisis.”
