EU Nations Demand Tougher Russia Sanctions in Next Package

  • Poland, Ireland, Baltics seeking more measures on energy
  • Proposals also target banks links to SWIFT, document shows

Several European Union nations are pushing to broaden sanctions against Moscow over its invasion of Ukraine as the bloc races to find an agreement on capping the price of Russian oil.

Poland, Ireland and the three Baltic nations want the EU to extend its sanctions on Russian energy to include a ban on liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) products and restrictions on nuclear energy cooperation, according to a document seen by Bloomberg and to people familiar with the matter.
