1,000 Jews Gather in Lviv - Ukraine City Honors Far Right Wing Nationalists

EU sanctions to cover all State Duma Members elected in occupied Crimea, spokesperson for Lithuanian Foreign Ministry

European Union finance ministers included Members of the State Duma of the Russian Federation from Crimea and Sevastopol to the EU sanctions list.

As reported by Censor.NET, spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania Kestutis Vashkelyavichyus told Kommersant newspaper.

The diplomat confirmed that Lithuania was among the countries that initiated expansion of sanctions adopted today, Nov. 8. Kestutis Vashkelyavichyus reiterated that maintaining the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine was not only Lithuanian government's but all the EU countries' firm stance.

A total of seven Members of the State Duma of the Russian Federation from Crimea including Konstantin Baharev, Andrey Kozenko, Svetlana Savchenko, Ruslan Balbek, Pavel Shperov, Mikhail Sheremet, and Natalia Poklonskaya as well as Dmitry Belik representing Sevastopol in the State Duma were included in the list of sanctions. Sheremet and Poklonskaya have already been subjects to the EU sanctions.

Earlier, European Union finance ministers agreed new targeted sanctions against Crimean officials Nov. 8. They were added to restrictive measures adopted after Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014.

As previously reported, in 2014, the European Union, the United States and several other countries imposed sanctions against Russia in connection with the occupation of Crimea and aggression in eastern Ukraine. These restrictive measures were repeatedly extended and expanded. In particular, the talks on visa waiver and a new basic agreement on cooperation were suspended; several Russia's officials were banned to travel to the EU while their assets were attached. Trade, financial, and military restrictions were introduced.

The sanctions list included a total of 151 individuals and 37 entities. The sectoral sanctions were imposed against 20 Russian financial, oil-producing and defense companies.

The Russian Federation introduced a package of retaliation restrictions against the EU, the U.S., Australia, Canada, and Norway in August 2014. The so-called counter-sanctions prohibited imports of fruit, vegetables, as well as dairy and meat products to Russia from these countries for a one-year period.
