Permanent representatives of member states to the European Union are expected to agree on additional sanctions against Russia and the allocation of the fifth tranche of military assistance to Ukraine on Wednesday, launching the final procedure for the approval of these decisions by their respective countries, APA reports citing Sputnik.

Sanctions and assistance to Ukraine are marked on the agenda as items not requiring preliminary discussion; once approved by EU countries, the sanctions will be published in the Official Journal of the EU and go into force. Names of new people on the sanctions list are not expected to be made public before that.
