EU MEPs want sanctions against more Russians
MEPs are calling for a drastic expansion of EU entry bans against supporters of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his war on Ukraine. At the very least, punitive measures should be imposed on the more than 6,000 people who are on a list compiled by the foundation of jailed Kremlin opponent Alexei Navalny, according to a letter sent on Monday to High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrell. In addition to an EU travel ban, the sanctions should also include asset freezes.
