According to him, the agreed sanctions package provides for:

de-Swifting the largest russian bank Sberbank;

banning 3 more russian state-owned broadcasters in the EU;

sanctioning individuals responsible for war crimes in Ukraine.

Also, as Charles Michel stated, the European Union will allocate 9 billion euros of financial assistance to Ukraine together with partners in the G7.
