The European Union is considering imposing sanctions

The European Union is considering imposing sanctions on over 60 individuals, including Alexei Dyumin, a former bodyguard of Russian President Vladimir Putin who now serves as governor of the Tula region.

Additionally, restrictions may target 55 companies involved in weapons production and key technologies for Russian defense. The EU aims to expedite the adoption of these measures before the second anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The impending sanctions are expected to focus on dual-use goods, straddling civilian and military applications. Despite their restrained approach, future sanctions may include tighter restrictions on Russian imports. Meanwhile, the Group of Seven (G7) nations plans to tighten oil sanctions against Russia by limiting its use of covert oil transportation methods.
