The EU Council introduced restrictive measures against 8 persons for active support of actions and implementation of policies that undermine or threaten the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine.
Among the persons added to the EU sanctions list are representatives of law enforcement agencies – judges, prosecutors and security officials – responsible for the implementation of Russian legislation in the illegally annexed Crimea and Sevastopol.
“These people made biased decisions in cases with political motives and persecuted or suppressed opponents of the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol,” the message says.
The EU restrictive measures in relation to the territorial integrity of Ukraine now apply to 185 people and 48 business entities. They are banned from entering the EU and their assets are frozen.
