EU sanctions should include Russian gas embargo, says Ukraine official

The latest missile attacks by Russia on Kyiv demonstrate the need for more severe international penalties, including an EU embargo on Russian gas, according to the chief of staff for the Ukrainian president.

“The G7 summit should respond to Russian strikes on Kyiv,” said Andriy Yermak, head of the president’s office.

“The sanctions should be more aggressive. An embargo on gold exports is good, but a gas embargo is needed in the new EU sanctions package,” he said on the Telegram app.
