European Commission welcomes new sanctions against Russia

# The European Commission has welcomed the approval of a 13th package of sanctions against Russia by the European Union members. The sanctions include the banning of 200 additional entities and individuals accused of being involved in the invasion of Ukraine. The focus is on entities and individuals that are part of Russia’s military-industrial complex, and those involved in the trafficking and kidnapping of Ukrainian children. European Commission president, Ursula von der Leyen, says they must keep degrading Russian president Vladamir Putin’s war machine.
