The decision of the Council of the EU on December 21 to extend the six months to 31 July 2019 of the EU's economic sanctions against Russia was published on Friday in the EU Official Journal.

"This decision comes into force the day after it was published in the Official Journal of the European Union," reads Censor.NET, referring to Interfax-Ukraine.

The decision of the Council of the EU on the further extension of sectoral sanctions was adopted unanimously by written procedure, the press service of the council previously said.

This was the legal approval of the relevant political decision of EU heads of state and government adopted on December 13, 2018 at the EU summit in Brussels. They followed the reports of French President Emmanuel Macron and Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel that there was no progress in the implementation of the Minsk Agreements with which the EU bound these restrictive measures.

These sanctions were originally introduced on July 31, 2014 for a period of one year "in response to Russia's efforts to destabilize the situation in Ukraine." They were reinforced in September 2014. On March 19, 2015, the European Council imposed sanctions on the full implementation of the Minsk Agreements.

The measures concern the financial, energy and defense sectors, as well as dual-use goods.

Economic sanctions include:

- Restriction of access to the primary and secondary market of EU capital for five Russian financial institutions with a majority stake of the state in the authorized capital and their subsidiaries in which these organizations hold a majority stake and established outside the EU, as well as for three large Russian energy companies companies and three defense companies;

- export and import ban on arms trade;

- the introduction of a ban on the export of dual-use goods to Russia for military needs or for the Russian army;

- Restricting Russia's access to certain strategic, technology and services that can be used to develop and extract oil.

"Crimean" UN resolutions drive Russia into a corner and turn it into a rogue, - Dzhemilev

Crimea - Ukraine News. Friday 28 December. [Ukrainian sources] Censor_news_big3

The Russian Federation continues to ignore recent resolutions of the United Nations General Assembly on human rights violations in the occupied Crimea and its militarization, but they provide grounds for strengthening sanctions against the aggressor country.

According to Censor.NET, referring to Ukrinform, the leader of the Crimean Tatar people, Mustafa Dzhemilev, said during a discussion in the Crimean home.

"Russia does not comply with the requirements of these resolutions (adopted by the UN on December 17 and 22, ed.) And does not fulfill them in the same way as the requirements of other international organizations, including the OSCE, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. But this does not mean that these they are more and more pushing the aggressor country into an angle and turning it into a land of rogue states. It can be said with certainty that Russia takes seven-step steps towards the status of "great North Korea." And secondly, these resolutions give grounds for new and more severe sanctions against the country-aggressor and in the end Of course, they will lead to positive results, "said Dzhemilev.

The politician reminded that at the end of this year, on December 17 and 22, two resolutions were adopted directly related to Ukraine.

"The first draft, presented by Ukraine and supported by the co-sponsors of the 40 states, is about the militarization of Crimea by Russia, the second, five days later, a resolution on the human rights situation, both resolutions passed, and our first deputy foreign minister Kislitsa, having made the correct diplomatic step, said that it should be adopted by at least two thirds of the votes in order to demonstrate its strength", - said Dzhemilev.

In fact, he stressed, the resolution was adopted not by two thirds, but by three quarters of the votes, and it expressed a sharp condemnation of the aggressor country, and assessed the events that took place in the Sea of ​​Azov as "real piracy on the part of Russia."

As to the human rights resolution, the politician said that "this is not the first resolution, which deals with illegal arrests, torture, numerous deportations, the settlement of Crimea by citizens of Russia, contrary to the requirements of the 1949 Geneva Convention on the Status of Occupied Territories."

Recall, on Monday, December 17, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted a resolution on the militarization of the Crimea. It expresses concern over the security threats that progressive militarization by Russia of Crimea is with Ukraine, the Black Sea region and Europe as a whole.

For the first time in the text, it is mentioned that, occupying the Crimea, Russia violated its obligations under the Budapest memorandum. The resolution calls on Moscow to withdraw troops from the Crimea and complete its temporary occupation of the Ukrainian peninsula.

The document also condemns the attack on Ukrainian ships and Navy seamen on November 25 and calls on Russia to be released immediately without any additional conditions.

On Saturday, December 22, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted resolution A / C.3 / 73 / L.48 "Situation with the human rights in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ukraine". For the 65 Member States voted against, with 27, 70 delegates abstained. This is the third UN-initiated UN resolution on human rights in the Crimea over the past three years. The first two were adopted by the General Assembly in 2016 and 2017.

"It is becoming more helpless, so we sometimes be able to respond to the incident in bright words, we could actively act in the same Syria, for example. But the last two years is an ostrich's policy," he said.

Chaplin explained that in the long run, the "worse scenarios" will follow the actions.
