EU bans Russians from importing smartphones, personal cars and shampoo: details
The European Union (EU) has banned residents of the terrorist country Russia from importing cars, smartphones, jewelry, laptops and other things. Russians are now not allowed to import even shampoos into the bloc's territory.
The European Commission confirmed the interpretation of the sanctions legislation against the Russian Federation, according to which the entry into the EU countries on passenger cars registered in Russia is regarded as prohibited imports. This is stated in the document of the EC.
It does not matter whether the vehicle is used for private or commercial purposes, as long as it is registered in Russia, it is subject to sanctions and will be treated as prohibited imports. It is also prohibited to import cosmetics, suitcases, laptops, leather and fur products, semi-precious and precious stones, toilet paper, shampoos and toothpastes.
Earlier it was reported that Estonia is going to be the first EU country to legalize the confiscation of Russian assets to finance Ukraine's reconstruction.The country's government is already ready to approve the relevant bill and send it to parliament for approval.
"It will really hit the oligarchs, it will really hit the Russian state," Estonian Foreign Minister Margus Tsahkna said. He also added that this law will inevitably lead to a wave of litigation from Russia.
As OBOZREVATEL wrote earlier, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that Russia's holding of fake "elections" in the temporarily seized territories of Ukraine is a picture for propaganda. He threatened that everyone involved in this illegal process risks falling under US sanctions.
