LUXEMBOURG (AP) -- A high-ranking official of the European Union says foreign ministers have decided to sanction more Russians with asset freezes and visa bans as a sign of opposition to Moscow's policy toward Ukraine.
EU policy chief Catherine Ashton declined Monday to make public the number or names of any of the Russian officials or citizens affected. The decision taken by the 28 EU foreign ministers needs to be enshrined in legal documents which will be drafted quickly.
Ashton told reporters the decision was taken at a meeting of the ministers where the crisis in Ukraine, and how the EU should react, had dominated the agenda
