The European Union (EU) has decided to extend the sanctions of Russia, which has been attacking Ukraine for 6 months, for another 6 months. In a statement, the EU Council said that the sanctions would be extended until January 31, 2023. Russia first faced economic sanctions in 2014 for destabilizing Ukraine, the statement said. In this regard, it was reported that the sanctions of Russia, which started the war on Ukraine, were extended as of February.
Russia, which has been engaged in invasion attacks on Ukraine, has faced sanctions by many countries of the world. Plagued by economic sanctions, Russia remains in the class in natural gas and oil exports, where it generates the most revenue. EU countries note that if Russia continues its attack on the territorial integrity of Ukraine, it will strengthen and increase its sanctions.
