The head of the Ukrainian President's Office, Andriy Yermak, called for stripping Russian propagandists of opportunity to travel to the EU and the US freely.
He said this during a meeting with the head of the European Commission President's Office, Bjoern Seibert, and the diplomatic advisor of the President of the European Commission, Fernando Andresen Guimaraes, the website of the President of Ukraine reports.
Yermak stressed the importance of stepping up sanctions against Russian propagandists who actively support the aggression against Ukraine. Namely, these such are visiting the countries of the civilized world and own real estate in the European Union and the US.
According to Andriy Yermak, propagandists who cheered on murder should be stripped of opportunity to travel to the EU and the US freely.
He also called on representatives of the European Commission for further sanctions in order to pressure Russia. Yermak emphasized that Ukraine was expecting a decision on another powerful package of sanctions to be made before the anniversary of Russia's full-scale invasion.
Moreover, the head of the President's Office suggested holding weekly briefings among representatives of partner states, who will discuss stepping up the sanctions against individuals and legal entities that continue to support Russia's aggression against Ukraine. According to him, these briefings would be an opportunity to consider Ukraine's proposals and vision, as well as ideas for further steps in stepping up the sanctions policy.
For their part, the representatives of the European Commission updated the head of the President's Office on further steps regarding the sanctions policy vis-à-vis the Russian Federation and expressed willingness to learn more about Ukraine's proposals on this issue.
As IMI reported, on March 2, 2022, the EU urgently disabled the broadcasting of Russian state media outlets Sputnik and RT / Russia Today on the territory of the European Union in response to "Russia's unprovoked and unjustified military aggression against Ukraine."
