The ambassadors of the countries of the European Union agreed today to introduce the 14th package of sanctions against Russia due to the war in Ukraine, the Belgian presidency of the EU announced on the X platform.

The announcement states that the new package of sanctions was agreed upon because of "Russian aggression against Ukraine."

This package, it says, represents new targeted measures and strengthens the impact of existing sanctions by closing "loopholes" in the circumvention of sanctions.

The President of the European Council, Charles Michel, and the European Commission today welcomed the agreement reached between EU member states to introduce an additional package of sanctions against Russia, due to Russian aggression against Ukraine.

- I welcome the agreement on the 14th package of sanctions against Russia, said Michel in a post on X.

According to him, these new measures strengthen the current sanctions against Russia and close the "holes" that existed in them.

– The EU continues to restrict the Russian military machinery to end this illegal war. We remain strong, determined and united behind the people of Ukraine, Michel added in the announcement.

As reported by the MIA correspondent from Brussels, the chief spokesman of the EC, Eric Mamer, stated at today's regular noon press briefing that the European Commission also welcomes the agreement reached between the EU member states on a new package of sanctions against Russia.

- Of course, we expect its formal adoption, after which we will be able to give more details, Mamer added.

The Belgian presidency of the EU announced earlier today on X that the permanent representatives of the member states of the Union reached an agreement on a new, 14th, package of sanctions against Russia.

- EU ambassadors have just agreed on a powerful and substantial 14th package of sanctions in response to Russian aggression against Ukraine. This package provides new targeted measures and maximizes the impact of existing sanctions by closing loopholes, added the announcement of the Belgian presidency of the Union.
