European Commission head Ursula von der Leyen and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy discussed the eleventh package of sanctions against Russia, Zelenskyy reported on Telegram on April 4.
“I thanked her for participating in the Bucha Summit. We discussed future joint international events. We also touched upon other issues of support for Ukraine, in particular the need for preparation of the 11th package of sanctions and progress in implementing the recommendations of the European Commission,” he wrote.
Since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, the EU, United States, and several other countries have systematically imposed sanctions against the aggressor regime.
The European Union adopted the tenth package of sanctions on Feb. 25. In total, restrictions were introduced against 87 individuals and 34 legal entities.
The EU banned the import of synthetic rubber and bitumen from Russia, as well as transit through Russia of dual-use goods. Previously, the ban only applied to exports.
Russian citizens are also prohibited from running organizations that are operators of critical infrastructure in the European Union.
