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.”
