“We will further strengthen sanctions until the war is over” Karl Nehammer, Chancellor of Austria
Chancellor of Austria Karl Nehammer visited Kyiv on April 9, 2022, and met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. During the briefing, he stressed that Austria will strengthen sanctions against Russia until the war is over.
“The losses that the Austrian economy is suffering from sanctions, although they amount to billions of euros, are incomparable with the pain and grief that the Ukrainian people are experiencing,” the Austrian Chancellor said.
“Austria fully supports the sanctions of the European Union, introduces them at home, and Austria also supports Ukraine with its capabilities, which from the point of view of Ukraine is most necessary. We will further strengthen sanctions within the framework of the European Union until the war is over. And now another package of sanctions has been adopted, and it will not be the last, in order for the war to be stopped,” Nehammer added.
