The new sanctions list, which includes Russian citizens, is presented in the EU magazine.
It is noted that the director Nikita Mikhalkov, TV presenters Boris Korchevnikov and Marina Kim, singer Grigory Leps, political scientist Sergei Mikheev and blogger Dmitry Puchkov were included in the new list.
The financial assets of these media people in Europe will be frozen. In addition, they will be banned from entering the EU countries.
Earlier, the EU published a new sanctions package against Russia. It includes a block of economic restrictions, as well as personal measures against almost 200 individuals and various organizations. The list also includes statesmen: 40 deputies of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, 44 members of the Federation Council, 20 members of the constitutional court, as well as employees of law enforcement agencies.
Also, some Russian banks and several TV channels are subject to restrictions.
