Luxembourg, Monday The European Union rolled over for another year sanctions imposed to protest Russia’s 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine, which the bloc deems illegal.

The Crimea sanctions prohibit certain exports and imports, and ban investment and tourism services by EU-based companies there. “The Council (of member states) extended the restrictive measures in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol by Russia until June 23, 2018,” a statement said.

“The EU continues to condemn the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol by Russia and remains committed to fully implement its non-recognition policy,” the statement added. - AFP
