(ANSA) – BRUSSELS, FEBRUARY 27 – “For the first time ever, the European Union will finance the purchase and delivery of weapons and crews for a country under attack. It is a watershed moment”. This was announced by the president of the EU Commission Ursula von der Leyen regarding the European Peace Facility with which the Union will finance the purchase of even lethal material.

“Stop the transactions with the Russian central bank and freeze its assets abroad. Exclusion of important Russian banks from Swift”, confirmed von der Leyen in a statement in which he stresses that “the assets of the Russian oligarchs will be affected”.

“We will introduce restrictive measures” against “the most important sectors” of the Belarusian economy. “Stop the export of products such as mineral fuels, tobacco, timber, cement, iron and steel. And the ban on trade will be extended” for those sectors on which “Russia has been sanctioned”. Thus the president of the EU Commission. “All Belarusians who are supporting this war will be sanctioned,” she stressed, calling Minsk “the other aggressor”. (HANDLE).
