UPD: 07/30/2014 EU imposes third level of sanctions against Russia
The ambassadors of the EU member states on Tuesday during a meeting in Brussels decided to impose third-level sanctions against the Russian Federation.
The sanctions will affect the energy, financial sectors and military and dual-use products, several world agencies reported this, citing diplomatic sources. / p>
It is now known that financial sanctions will impose restrictions on Russian banks (including those that have a state ownership share of over 50%) regarding their entry into the credit market and the use of financial instruments with a term of more than 90 days. It is also forbidden to issue Eurobonds by state banks and issue shares in favor of European owners.
A complete ban on transactions in euros is not provided for by this sanction package.
Exactly such restrictions will apply to state institutions of the Russian Federation, corporations and agencies with a share of state ownership of more than 50%.
In the energy sector, sanctions will apply to the oil sector - the EU will ban the export and re-export of high-tech equipment to Russia, primarily equipment for deep sea drilling.
Restrictions in the field of military goods will not concern those contracts that were concluded earlier - this was a requirement of France, which thus guaranteed the completion of the contract for the delivery of Mistral helicopter carriers to Russia.
Reuters clarifies that the duration of these restrictions is 3 months, after which they can be reviewed. At the same time, European diplomats assure the European truth that they can be revised upwards for urgent needs.
The decision was made at the “working” level - European countries abandoned the idea of holding an emergency summit, although several European leaders, including Chancellor Angela Merkel, announced their willingness to interrupt their leave to participate in the meeting.
The effective date of the sanctions decision has not yet been announced; most likely, this will happen on Wednesday, after their publication in the official journal of the EU.
The decision of the EU has already been congratulated by some leading European politicians, including the head of the EPP faction in the European Parliament, ally Merkel Manfred Weber.

This is stated in the message of the US Treasury, reports Kommersant.
The United States also imposed sanctions against the United Shipbuilding Corporation of the Russian Federation. Recall that on Tuesday the European Union officially confirmed that it had agreed on a package of measures with economic sanctions against Russia, which would affect the access of state banks of the Russian Federation to EU capital, arms exports and dual-use products, access to technology and equipment for the oil industry. We also recall that in the European Union there was talk of a “third phase” of sanctions against Russian companies and sectors of the economy. However, the EU is still postponing the application of such restrictions.
