EU Prepares New Sanctions To Make Kremlin 'Pay The Price' For Escalating War Through Referendums.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has proposed a set of new sanctions on Russia in the wake of what the West and the United Nations have called “sham” referendums in four Ukrainian regions.
Von der Leyen proposed the new package on September 28, saying they are designed "to make the Kremlin pay" for escalating the conflict in Ukraine. "We do not accept the sham referenda nor any kind of annexation in Ukraine, and we are determined to make the Kremlin pay the price for this further escalation," she told reporters in Brussels. The proposed eighth sanctions package includes further import bans on Russian products that are meant to deprive Moscow of an additional 7 billion euros ($6.7 billion) in revenues. The package also includes more export bans on technology used by the military such as aviation items, electronic components, and specific chemical substances, von der Leyen said. In addition, the sanctions package will lay the legal basis for an oil price cap and ban EU citizens from sitting on governing bodies of Russian state-owned companies, she said. The new sanctions would also include restrictions on officials responsible for the referendums. The proposal will now go to the 27 EU member countries for approval. They will have to overcome differences in order to reach the required unanimity.
