“We call on the EU to impose a full energy embargo on Russian oil and gas. Oil should definitely be included in the sixth sanctions package, otherwise, it will not be powerful, but empty,” Zelenskyy said.
“It seems to me that the EU countries are ready to impose an oil embargo. We managed to impose a coal embargo, but at Germany’s insistence, it is postponed for four months. And I think that the embargo will be imposed under pressure from all other EU countries.”
European Council President Charles Michel also hinted at the following hopes: “We need to maximize pressure on the Kremlin.”
