Russia will face ‘hard-hitting’ EU sanctions, says Ireland

The Independent says Ireland has promised “very direct and very hard-hitting” sanctions against Russia, after the latest attack on Ukraine.

Taoiseach Micheal Martin condemned the action by Vladimir Putin on Thursday.

Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney told RTE radio: “We are not going to go to war with Russia, militarily.

“I think the response in terms of sanctions will be very direct and very hard-hitting, and that means that the EU is also going to suffer as a result of those sanctions because undoubtedly there’ll be counter-sanctions from Russia.”
