The expansion of the list of personal sanctions on Crimea by the European Union is a political order. This statement was made by Senator Olga Kovitidi in an interview with RIA Novosti.
According to Kovitidi, the new restrictions are destroying relations with the Russian side.
The representative of the Federation Council also pointed out the inadmissibility of imposing sanctions in conditions when the world agenda requires a pooling of efforts to consider and solve pressing international problems, among them the fight against a pandemic and climatic anomalies.
On Monday, October 11, the EU expanded its blacklist on Crimea’s reunification with Russia to include eight more people. Now the list includes 185 individuals and 48 legal entities.
Meanwhile, Ukraine has approved a strategy to “de-occupy” the Russian peninsula.
