The European Parliament published a resolution calling on the European Union not to confiscate personal belongings and cars of Russians. The document notes that “this discredits the purpose and instrument of sanctions,” TASS reports.
At the same time, EP deputies are asking to tighten sanctions against Russia, noting that European companies are bypassing restrictive measures against Moscow.
In particular, the European Parliament called for a complete ban on the sale and cutting of diamonds of Russian origin or re-exported by Russia to the EU, as well as the introduction of sanctions against the state-owned company Alrosa with a system for tracking the origin of diamonds based on new technologies.
The resolution proposes to completely close the EU market for Russian fossil fuels, to impose sanctions against the Arctic LNG 2 project, Russian oil companies, Gazprombank, Russian aluminum, and the Russian nuclear industry.
