EU Adds 11 People to Ukraine Crisis Blacklist
The European Union decided late Wednesday to impose a travel ban and freeze assets of eleven more people due to their alleged responsibility for the Ukrainian crisis.
The new list is yet to be announced, but leaders are expected to make it public in a few days.
Latest restrictions, reportedly targeting mainly leaders of rebels in Ukraine's east and south and only a few Russians, are likely to be in force from Saturday, website Dnevnik.bg quoted a Brussels diplomat as saying.
The blacklist was expanded following Monday's decision that the step should be taken "in principle".
Until now it included 61 people and two companies that saw their EU assets frozen and were prevented from traveling to any of the 28 EU member states.
EU leaders have repeatedly discussed the possibility to introduce harsher measures against Russian officials and entities in response to what they describe as a negative impacting Kremlin stance on the events in Ukraine.
Their last warning was in end-July, when they sought to press Moscow into assisting Kiev to implement its so-called "peace plan" aimed at ending violence in the Donbass region. Brussels then spoke of economic sanctions, but took no measures after the three-day deadline expired.

I don't suppose the list includes Vlad The Democrat, by any chance? I suppose that he's too untouchably rich with all the loot he's stolen from his long-suffering and gormless compatriots but no doubt the whining, brown-nosed apologists here and elsewhere will leap to his defence with their bizarre and senseless ramblings....
