Russian Foreign Ministry: Europe's approach to continental security issues is disappointing

During a meeting of the foreign ministers of the member states of the camp in Brussels, the European Union (EU) announced in its official newspaper that it had decided to impose sanctions on the “Wagner Group” and 3 companies and 8 affiliates. Described as human rights violations in Ukraine, Syria, Libya, Sudan, the Central African Republic and Mozambique.

The three companies “Ephropolis”, “Veloda” and “Mercury” specialize in the energy sector and are involved in oil and gas extraction operations in Syria, according to the European Union.

Among those allowed were former officials of the Russian military intelligence service, including the founder of the “Wagner Group”, according to the European Union, who was responsible for “coordinating and planning operations for the deployment of mercenaries in Ukraine.”

Sanctions include blocking the entry of persons allowed into EU territory, freezing the assets of parties targeted by control measures in the camp and preventing them from dealing with them.

In this context, Agency France-Press quoted a European embassy official as saying, “Wagner is a private Russian military entity used to disrupt security in Europe and other neighboring countries, especially in Africa.”
