"Special attention should be paid to the sanctions that obstruct and stop Russia's missile industry," Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said, as cited by online newspaper Yevropeiska Pravda. "Russia's ability to produce new missiles should be destroyed." 

He urged the EU to speed up work on the 9th package of sanctions against Russia. “I call on all colleagues in the EU to put aside any doubts, and start and quickly complete a new sanctions package. And make it as powerful as possible,” Kuleba said. 

Kuleba also called for a full energy embargo, applying the oil embargo to the Druzhba pipeline, and a ban on the import of liquefied natural gas from Russia. 

He added that the EU should impose sanctions against Russian state nuclear company Rosatom and suspend Russia’s rights at the International Atomic Energy Agency.
