Statement by the European Commission Spokeswoman on further restrictive measures against Russia
Following the request of the European Council of 30 August regarding the situation in Ukraine, the European Commission has adopted today for consideration by Member States proposals for the EU to take significant further steps. These proposals complement those adopted on 31 July and regard access to capital markets, defence, dual use goods, and sensitive technologies. The proposals will now be considered by Member States.
It is now for Member States to discuss and assess the Commission's proposals. They will be presented to the Council's Committee of Permanent Representatives (COREPER) today Wednesday in the afternoon. Once adopted by Member States, the proposals will be made public in the Official Journal of the European Union.
