EU HAS ADDED RUSSIAN BUSINESSMAN YEVGENIY PRIGOZHIN TO ITS LIBYA SANCTIONS LIST

On 14 October, EU Regulation 2020/1481/EU added Yevgeniy Viktorovich PRIGOZHIN to its sanctions lists engaging in and providing support for acts that threaten the peace, security or stability of Libya, including through violations of the UN arms embargo.  He is said to have close links, including financially, to the private military company Wagner Group.  Prigozhin and several of his companies have been US-designated since 2016.

I had omitted the following link (as it did not seem to generate much interest!), but it seemed time to add it again and say that, if you would like to make a (polite) gesture and help me with my removal and computer costs, I have a page at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
