The decision was approved without discussion by the Foreign Ministers of the EU member states, an Ukrinform correspondent reports from Brussels.

As Ukrinform earlier reported, in March 2014, the European Council agreed the first diplomatic measures in response to Russian actions in Ukraine.

Bans and restrictions apply to companies and entities regarding the activities in Crimea in the trade, economic, financial and investment spheres, as well as tourism, energy, and investment sectors.
