Poland and the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are reportedly calling for a hardline approach in the EU’s upcoming sanctions package against Russia, with proposed restrictions that would include a ban on liquefied petroleum gas products ( LPG), bans on cooperation in the field of nuclear energy, and cutting off the Russian bank Gazprombank from SWIFT (the bank is currently used to accept payments in rubles for Russian natural gas from countries classified as “unfriendly” by Moscow). In reports citing an internal document and sources believed to be familiar with the discussions, Bloomberg and the Financial Times said the proposed restrictions also include a ban on insurance services and the transfer of physical US dollars to Russia, as well as limitations on Russian access to cryptocurrency-based assets. The sweeping approach also calls for more banks than Gazprombank to be banned from using SWIFT, as well as a bloc-wide ban on diamonds, steel, and Russian technology products and services. Bloomberg reported that Ireland is among the countries calling for a tough approach. The countries would also propose additional restrictions on the entry of Russian vessels into EU ports, limitations on the sale of real estate to Russian companies and nationals who are not EU residents, and new sanctions against the Russian media. FT sources said it could be ‘difficult’ to find consensus on the radical proposals within the bloc, given Hungary’s intransigence on the issue and Budapest’s desire to avoid any further restrictions whatsoever. she is. Members and officials of the European Commission reportedly previously negotiated new sanctions against Moscow following President Vladimir Putin’s order this week to partially mobilize reserves for the ongoing Russian special operation in Ukraine. On Wednesday, an informed European source told Sputnik that the bloc was considering restrictions, including measures related to the implementation of the G7 countries’ proposed price cap on Russian-origin crude oil. President Putin warned earlier this month that Europe was “not in a position to dictate their will” to Moscow on energy price caps, and indicated that Russia would simply stop selling its energy resources to countries that were putting a cap in place. “You asked a question about capping the prices of our energy resources… It’s an absolutely stupid decision. If someone tries to implement it, no good will come out of it for those who do,” Putin warned. Brussels’ restrictions could also include new sanctions against Russian officials, the Sputnik source said. However, on Friday, sources told EUobserver that the bloc had trouble finding other Russian “big fish” to target.
