Approval of the sixth package of sanctions against Russia is delayed

Hungary’s objections on a number of issues are delaying the adoption of the sixth package of sanctions against the Russian Federation.

At the meeting of the permanent representatives of the countries EU in Brussels, says Bloomberg citing sources, she expressed several objections – in particular, not to impose sanctions against Patriarch Kirill.

Earlier, Josep Borrell, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, said RIA Newsthat Patriarch Kirill may be on the list of new individual EU sanctions adopted as part of the sixth sanctions package.

The permanent representative of Hungary, the agency reports, also spoke about “minor technical issues” related to the introduction partial embargo for Russian oil. As a result, the approval of EU sanctions against Russia may be delayed. Earlier, EU President Charles Michel said that the process of approving the sixth sanctions package would be completed on Wednesday or Thursday.

Earlier, our publication wrote that for more than a month in the European Union they could not find a solution to the embargo on Russian oil that would suit everyone. Most of all resisted Hungary, which does not have access to the sea. Russia for her is a traditional supplier of energy resources. To search for other partners and refit, Hungary received a reprieve.
