Estonia Supports Full Energy Embargo Against Russia

Home / World / Estonia Supports Full Energy Embargo Against Russia
Estonia has called on the EU to impose additional sanctions against Russia for its invasion of Ukraine. “We must raise the price of aggression high before winter arrives. Seven packages were not enough to put pressure on Putin to end the war against Ukraine,” Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Reinsalu said on Vikerraadio. He listed the measures proposed to be included in the new EU sanctions package. Among them are a comprehensive energy embargo, further restrictions on certain groups of goods and individuals, a permanent separation of Russian banks from the SWIFT system, and a ban on Russian citizens entering the EU. Last week, Tallinn decided to officially propose to the European Commission to adopt the eighth package of sanctions against Russia. DW
