On April 20, the European Commission will convene the ambassadors of the EU countries for a closed review of the content of the next package of sanctions. The European Commission will announce its plans, and diplomats will give feedback and name the red lines for their states.
According to Ursula von der Leyen, the package will include tools to combat all currently known methods of evading sanctions and continuing cooperation with the aggressor and collaborator countries. At Germany's initiative, this package should include Russian nuclear energy, which has been untouched until now and still brings billions of dollars in revenue for the war against Ukraine. Currently, it is known that France and Hungary oppose it.
Ukraine introduced sanctions against Russia's nuclear industry on March 5, 2023.
