Germany is using a transitional period of 120 days to completely stop importing coal from Russia. This was stated by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, reports Reuters.

He also called the fifth package of European Union sanctions “a big decisive next step.”

Earlier, on April 7, the permanent representatives of the EU countries agreed on the fifth package of anti-Russian sanctions. It includes a complete embargo on Russian coal imports. Imports of Russian gas, oil and nuclear fuel were not affected by the new restrictive measures.

French television channel BFMTV reported that Russian coal imports to the EU amounted to 45% of the total.

Prior to this, MEPs called on the EU to impose an embargo on the supply of Russian gas, oil, coal and nuclear fuel. However, the resolution of the European Parliament is advisory in nature.

In addition, the new sanctions package provides for the freezing of assets of several Russian banks, an embargo on arms supplies to Russia,

a ban on Russian-flagged ships from entering EU ports.
