European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has said that the European Union (EU) is going to impose another round of sanctions on Russia. The BBC reported this information in a report on Wednesday.
Von der Leyen said the EU was ending its dependence on Russian oil. Russia has banned oil purchases by the end of this year.
However, he acknowledged that this would not be easy. Because some countries are dependent on Russian oil imports.
Hungary has already opposed Russia’s energy embargo.
However, there is no consensus among the 28 members of the European Union to stop using Russian natural gas. The EU has not yet imposed sanctions on Russia’s gas.
Germany is also dependent on Russian gas. A 2020 report found that Germany was Russia’s top buyer of gas.
