The EU is putting the finishing touches on a tenth set of sanctions on Russia, according to the chairman of the European Commission.

“The 10th package is on its way. We have the aim to have it in place by the 24th of February,” Ursula von der Leyen said in a recorded joint press conference with Zelenskyy and European Council President Charles Michel.

Von der Leyen stated that the new package was worth about €10 billion ($10.8 ban), while emphasizing that the Russian economy was already “suffering a severe price” for the war in Ukraine under the prior sanctions.

“The plan is to focus once more on technology that can and should not be used by Russia’s war machine. In other words, we look deeper into components that were found, for example, in drones, to make sure that there’s zero availability for Russia of these technologies or the drones’ production, for example, in Iran, that we are following up closely,” von der Leyen said.
