The European Union has extended the individual restrictive measures against Russian, Crimean officials, members of terrorist organizations in certain areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, including some people who make up Vladimir Putin’s inner circle.

The decision has been approved by the Committee of Permanent Representatives of the EU Member States at the Council of the European Union on Wednesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports from Brussels.

The restrictions, which have been also imposed on certain companies and institutions, will be extended for next six months.

The individual restrictive measures against 149 people and 38 entities provide for travel ban and asset freeze on the territory of the European Union.

As the official representative of the Council of the EU said, one more company, which serves the port in the temporarily occupied Crimea, was put on the sanction list.

Also, according to sources, newly appointed Russia’s ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov will remain on the EU’s "blacklist".

The full wording of the updated measures, including the names of persons and companies, will soon be published in the Official Journal of the European Union.
