Kosovo has launched a new package of sanctions against Russia and Belarus following similar actions by the European Union.
A government decision on Monday included the freezing of assets and travel bans for individuals and goods from the two countries to Kosovo.
Deputy Prime Minister Besnik Bislimi stressed Kosovo’s unwavering position in active support of all Western allies’ decisions related to the Russian aggression against Ukraine, while highlighting that his country was among the first ones to impose sanctions on Russia.
Part of the latest sanctions was the infamous Wagner Group, a private military company serving Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In today’s meeting the government also reviewed a draft decision on the implementation of EU sanctions against ISIS and Al-Qaeda.
