(QHA) -

Crimea's prosecutor general, Natalya Poklonskaya, who warned that Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people will be banned if “engaged in extremist activity”, is one of those targeted by new EU sanctions.

EU foreign ministers have expanded their sanctions over Russia's actions in Ukraine, adding two Crimean companies and 13 people to the bloc's blacklist, EU diplomats stated.

The sanctions will come into effect Tuesday. Earlier, 48 Russians and Ukrainians were targeted by EU asset freezes and visa bans over Crimean annexation.
