In the press release of diplomatic service it is said that the document on new sanctions will be signed at a meeting of Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the EU in Luxembourg on Monday. It is about the sanctions offered by Great Britain and France after the chemical attacks in Syria and Salisbury. "For many years there was the international prohibition of use of chemical weapon, but now it threatens after Syria and Salisbury. Now we need to redraw the red line which establishes that for those who use this awful weapon the price will always be too high. These new sanctions are vital, but it is not the end of history" — Telegraph cites words of the British foreign minister Jeremy Hunt. Among restrictive measures, in particular restriction of entry into EU countries and also freezing of foreign accounts of heads of the Russian intelligence and their closest associates is possible, noted in the MFA. In September the EU Council officially prolonged for six months — till March 15, 2019 — personal sanctions against Russia. In the list of sanctions there are 150 natural persons and 38 companies among which there are Russian politicians, businessmen, security officers and also the leaders of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk people's republics (the DPR and LPR). The EU connects these sanctions with undermining territorial integrity of Ukraine, its sovereignty and independence.
