The European Union adopts its 13th package of sanctions against Russia

On 23 February, the European Union adopted the 13th package of individual and economic sanctions against Russia.

"The EU adopted yet another package of sanctions against Russia, and we are already beginning to work on a new one. There will be as many of them as necessary," says Lithuania's Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis.

Today, the EU decided to impose restrictive measures on an additional 106 individuals and 88 entities. The listings target primarily the military and defence sectors and associated individuals, including those responsible for the illegal deportation of Ukrainian children and child trafficking.

Moreover, the EU will expand the list of restricted items that could contribute to the technological enhancement of Russia’s defence and security sector by adding components for the development and production of drones.
