The closure of the community market to gold from Russia follows in the footsteps already started by other partners within the G7 and aims to maintain pressure on Vladimir Putin’s regime after the invasion of Ukraine, although the seventh package on the table does not address further measures at the energy level that are not yet “mature” enough.

The sanctions due to the war against Ukraine that the ministers will discuss do not raise relevant reservations among the delegations, according to different European sources, so their rapid adoption is expected throughout the week, but after the meeting of ministers, probably on Wednesday in a process at the level of ambassadors.

The ministers will also dedicate part of the agenda to a broader discussion of the situation in Ukraine and how to strengthen the coordinated response from the international community, with the involvement of other partners outside the EU, but they are also expected to close the political agreement to unlock a new tranche of 500 million euros for the purchase of weapons for Ukraine.

The Twenty-seven will also be able to transfer these issues to the Ukrainian Foreign Minister, Dimitro Kuleba, who has been invited once again to participate in a discussion with the ministers via telematics to take stock of the situation and listen to their demands.
