New sanctions against Russia will be prepared by the European Union in the coming days, said Economy Minister Robert Habek .

“We have seen how effective sanctions are, we have seen where there are possible ways around them, we have seen what further technological products we can stop supplying to destabilize and weaken the Russian economy. I proceed from the fact that this week this will be updated in the fifth package of sanctions,” said the head of the German Ministry of Economy at a press conference.

As the site wrote, the day before, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that Western countries intend to adopt new sanctions against Russia in the near future, the consequences of which the Russian authorities will feel. In addition, Scholz announced the need to investigate the “murders of civilians” in the Ukrainian city of Bucha. International organizations, such as the Committee of the Red Cross, should also be involved in this, he believes.
