EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini said this in a statement on Monday, October 22.
According to the statement, these countries joined the September decision of the EU Council to prolong the restrictive measures against Russia until March 15, 2019.
"The Candidate Countries Montenegro and Albania, and the EFTA country Norway, member of the European Economic Area, as well as Ukraine, align themselves with this declaration," the statement reads.
These countries will ensure that their national policies conform to this Council decision.
"The European Union takes note of this commitment and welcomes it," Mogherini said.
In September, the European Union extended personal restrictive measures against Russian individuals and entities involved view of the continuing undermining or threatening of the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine.
These measures concern asset freezes and travel bans. Sanctions have currently been applied to 155 individuals and 44 legal entities.
