Transition period ends: EU no longer allowed to purchase coal from Russia
EU countries will no longer be allowed to import coal from Russia from this Thursday. At midnight, the transitional period for the coal embargo against Russia, which the EU states decided on as part of the fifth sanctions package in April, will end. To allow the industry to adjust to the import ban, the countries agreed at the time to a transition period of 120 days.
