Russia will take measures against new sanctions
The EU again introduced a package of sanctions
/NOVOSTIVL/ Russia will respond to new European Union sanctions, its foreign ministry said on Saturday, without saying what action it would take.
The EU on Friday added eight more Russians to its sanctions list over a stand-off between Russia and Ukraine in the Azov Sea, including senior security service officials and military commanders that the EU accuses of preventing Ukrainian ships from reaching port.
The United States and Canada also introduced new sanctions.
“The Russian side will not leave this unfriendly action by the European Union unanswered,” the foreign ministry said in a statement.
The EU’s decision takes the number of people blacklisted by the bloc over the crisis in Ukraine to 170, plus 44 entities.
