EU ready to slap more sanctions on Russia, Borrell says

The European Union is ready to impose additional sanctions on Russia over the invasion of Ukraine, the bloc's foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said on Monday.

"Restrictive measures continue constituting an important part of our approach, and we are ready to take further (measures) with our partners," he told reporters after a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Brussels.

Britain's Ministry of Defence (MoD) said on Monday it had summoned the Russian defense attaché for a second time in relation to Moscow's invasion of Ukraine and the conduct of Russia's armed forces.

"The 2nd Permanent Under Secretary Laurence Lee protested in the strongest terms against the persistent and unjustified acts of violence being committed against innocent civilians by Russian forces," the MoD said on Twitter.

Polish government spokesman Piotr Müller announced on Monday that Poland is pursuing a law that would tax Polish companies for doing business with Russia.
