Borrell proposes sanctioning over 120 entities, individuals due to Ukraine crisis - statement

BRUSSELS. Nov 15 (Interfax) - EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell has proposed adding more than 120 individuals and legal entities to the anti-Russian sanctions lists as part of the 12th package of restrictive measures against Russia, the European External Action Service (EEAS) said.

"The high representative proposes to sanction over 120 additional individuals and entities for their role in undermining sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine," the EEAS said in a statement.

In addition, Borrell along with the European Commission propose adopting restrictions on imports and exports of additional categories of goods, and approving measures to make the Russian oil price cap more effective and to counter the circumvention of sanctions.

The proposals also include sanctions on representatives of the Russian military and defense sector, as well as the IT industry.

As previously reported, the Committee of Permanent Representatives in the European Union (Coreper) placed a discussion on proposals for a 12th package of restrictive measures against Russia on the agenda of its meeting on Friday.
