"Today, new sanctions against Russia were discussed between the United States, major European powers and international partners. It was decided that the sanctions would be strengthened in the coming days. These restrictions will affect energy resources, in particular oil," Bon said.
He stressed that restrictions on oil supplies from Russia are necessary to "stop funding the war in Ukraine."
