European Union's foreign policy chief Josep Borrell argued on Saturday that Russia has paid a very high price for breaking international law by invading Ukraine, APA reports citing Teletrader.

"Our sanctions have already major effects on Russia in strategic sectors: defense, oil and car industry, airlines. Even if sanctions do not change the Russian trajectory in the short term, they deprive Russia of many resources to wage its war," Borrell shared in a series of Twitter posts.

The EU has adopted six sanctions packages against Russia to date, implementing trade and entry restrictions on a wide range of companies and individuals supporting the government of President Vladimir Putin.
