EU agrees on Russian coal embargo

Representatives from the 27 EU member states agreed on Thursday on a Russian coal embargo as part of a fifth round of sanctions against Russia as evidence builds that Russian soldiers executed civilians in the areas outside of Kyiv.

The package of sanctions was approved by the EU’s Committee of Permanent Representatives, the French EU Council presidency said in a tweet.

It includes sanctions against oligarchs and the freezing of assets of several Russian banks.
