The European Union Will Keep Sanctions Against the Crimea
March 21, 2015 00:00


The European Union will keep the sanctions against the Crimea.

This was said by the Head of the EU diplomacy Federica Mogherini on the anniversary of the adjoining of the peninsula to Russia, according to Reuters.

“The European Union still does not recognize and condemns this act of violation of international law” – Mogerini announced. “The EU also confirms the deep criticism of the ongoing militarization and the deterioration of the human rights situation on the Crimean Peninsula, including the violation of the right to freedom of speech and harassment of minorities.” According to Mogerini, with the help of sanctions the RU expresses its non-recognition of the fact of adjoining of the Crimea to Russia. At the same time, the Head of the Austrian Foreign Ministry Sebastian Kurz stated that his country did not support the extension of economic sanctions against Russia.

According to Kurtz, there is no hurry – the sanctions will be effective until the end of spring, and then the issue should be considered in the context of the situation in Ukraine, as Reuters writes. The sanctions against Russia were introduced by the EU in the middle of March 2014, after the adjoining of the Crimea to Russia. Restrictive measures included the freezing of assets and the introduction of visa restrictions for the individuals included into blacklists, as well as the ban for the companies in the sanctions-imposing countries on maintaining business relationships with the above-mentioned individuals and organizations. In addition, separate EU member states have introduced their own sanctions against Russia and the Republic of Crimea.
