Russia says it will respond to new EU sanctions
19 Mar 2019

Russia will respond to new European Union sanctions, its foreign ministry said on Saturday, without saying what action it would take.

The EU on Friday added eight more Russians to its sanctions list over a stand-off between Russia and Ukraine in the Azov Sea, including senior security service officials and military commanders that the EU accuses of preventing Ukrainian ships from reaching port.

The EU’s announcement coincided with the fifth anniversary of Russia’s annexation of the Crimean peninsula and was coordinated with the United States and Canada. The two countries also introduced new sanctions.
