EU strengthens sanctions against economy of occupied Crimea

The European Union has introduced additional restrictive measures against the economy of Crimea temporarily occupied by Russia.
European External Action Service (EEAS) spokesperson Maja Kocijancic said this on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent in Brussels reported.
She said she could confirm that the European Council had adopted additional sanctions against Crimea and Sevastopol in the sphere of investment, services and trade.
Kocijancic said that the reason for the strengthening of sanctions by the EU was the implementation of the policy on the non-recognition of Russia’s annexation of Crimea.
She also said that sanctions would be made public on Friday and would take effect on Saturday.
