EU to strengthen sanctions on Crimea on Thursday – Mogherini

Additional EU sanctions on Crimea will be approved on Thursday, December 18.
This was stated by EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini, UNIAN reports.
“I would expect the work at the working group level to be finalized in these very same hours and then a written procedure could finalize their implementation in time for the European Council [meeting] on Thursday,” she said at a press conference in Brussels after the first meeting of the EU-Ukraine Association Council.
According to Mogherini, an additional part of EU measures on Crimea require greater legislative framework and technical work, which is still ongoing.
“Today [on December 15] in the Foreign Affairs Council we restated unanimously the political commitment for swift implementation of the part of the sanctions that were already decided,” she said.
