New sanctions and more weapons for Ukraine: EU presses ahead in response to mobilization in russia

According to the story in Reuters, “European Union foreign ministers agreed on Wednesday to prepare new sanctions on Russia and increase weapons’ deliveries to Kyiv after President Vladimir Putin ordered the country’s first wartime mobilization since World War Two to fight in Ukraine.”

“After being briefed by Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, the ministers agreed to task their teams to prepare an eighth sanctions package that would target ‘more relevant sectors of the Russian economy and continue targeting people responsible for the war of aggression in Ukraine,’ the High Representative Josep Borrell said.”

“EU ministers will hold their next formal meeting in mid-October when a sanctions package could be formalized.”
