STOCKHOLM, Feb. 24 (Xinhua) — The European Union (EU) has agreed on the 10th sanctions package against Russia, the Swedish Presidency of the EU Council said on Twitter Friday evening.
“The package includes, for example, tightened export restrictions for dual-use goods and technologies,” the Swedish presidency said.
It said the package also includes “targeted limited measures against individuals and entities” that have supported Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine and supplied drones for Russia to use in that military operation.
EU member states have imposed “the most powerful and far-reaching sanctions ever” to support Ukraine, it added.
Final approval of the sanctions is expected on Saturday when the details will be made public by the EU.
The proposed package, announced in mid-February, indicated bans on exports of critical technology and industrial goods worth 11 billion euros (US$11.6 billion) to Russia. (1 euro = 1.06 US dollars)
