Europe to propose new sanctions against Russia

The European Commission is set to propose new sweeping sanctions against Russia on Tuesday, EU officials said, including a ban on Russian coal imports, reducing access for Russian road and sea carriers to the bloc, targeting oligarchs and their families and blocking certain machine exports.

The measures, which will have to be backed by the bloc’s 27 member states, come after reports over the weekend from Ukraine of potential war crimes against civilians by Russian forces galvanized pressure in in favor of stricter European measures against the Kremlin.
