The new Greek government has agreed to impose more EU sanctions on Russia, while defending its right to shape European foreign policy.
Foreign ministers in Brussels on Thursday (29 January) extended the Russia blacklist for six months, promised to add extra names, and began preparations for a fresh round of economic sanctions.
The new names – individuals and entities – are to be added by 9 February at the latest.
Leaders will decide whether to move ahead on economic sanctions most likely at a summit in mid-March.
