The European Union is pressing ahead with a ninth sanction package on Russia in response to its attack on Ukraine.
European Commission Chief Ursula von der Leyen said on Thursday; “We are working hard to hit Russia where it hurts to blunt even further its capacity to wage war on Ukraine and I can announce today that we are working full speed on a 9th sanctions package.
“And I’m confident that we will very soon approve a global price cap on Russian oil with the G7 and other major partners. We will not rest until Ukraine has prevailed over Putin and his unlawful and barbaric war.”
Von der Leyen did not provide details of what measures a new round of EU sanctions could contain.
“I also know our Ukrainian friends will overcome this strategy because they are strong and their cause is just and we, the EU, stand here by them in these very difficult times as long as it takes,” she said.
The European Parliament on Wednesday designated Russia a state sponsor of terrorism, arguing that its military strikes on Ukrainian civilian targets violated international law.
