On 25 February, the EU Council announced further sanctions on Russia.  In addition to individuals named, the latest round relates primarily to technology and industrial goods such as electronics, machine parts and specialised vehicles, as well as specialised components for truck and jet engines.  Sanctions apply to 121 individuals and entities, including suspending the broadcasting licences of 2 Russia-controlled media outlets, RT Arabic and Sputnik Arabic. 7 entities connected to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps are accused of helping supply drones and related technology to Russia for use in Ukraine.  3 more Russian banks were also added to the lists.
