The 27 EU countries approve the new sanctions on Russia

EU ambassadors have just reached an agreement in principle on the 13th package of sanctions in the context of Russia's aggression against Ukraine. The Belgian presidency made this known by specifying that the package “is one of the largest approved by the EU. It will now be subjected to a written procedure and formally approved on 24 February.

“I welcome the adoption of our 13th sanctions package against Russia. We must continue to reduce Putin's war machine. With 2000 designations in total on the restrictive measures list we keep the pressure on the Kremlin high. We are also further reducing the Russia's access to drones”. The president of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen writes it on X.

“We must protect our democracy and our values. Our appeal is so great that many other countries want to join. We must defend ourselves from Euroscepticism and Putin's friends, inside and outside the EU”, said Ursula von der Leyen in the press conference organized for his candidacy for the presidency of the EPP Commission.

“We are making excellent progress in the process of screening” the reforms to be made in view of membership, “and this is very good but I don't think we will be ready before the elections. The work on the different positions in the negotiations will indeed take time. I believe that we will be ready at the beginning of the summer”, declared the president of the EU Commission in response to a question on the timing of Ukraine's accession negotiations with the EU.
