EU Sanctions Will Cause Problems For The Bloc, Says Russia

The latest round of European Union sanctions against Russia over the invasion of Ukraine will just exacerbate problems within the bloc, spokeswoman for Russian Foreign Ministry said on Saturday.

Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement; “The current ‘package’ will have the same effect as all the previous ones - exacerbation of socio-economic problems in the European Union itself.”

She also called on the bloc to cancel all restrictions having an impact on Russian exports of grains and fertilizers.

EU leaders this week agreed to hit Russia with a ninth package of sanctions and also to blacklist nearly 200 more people and bar investment in Russia’s mining industry.

The European Union also plans to provide 18 billion euros ($19 billion) in financing to Ukraine next year.
