The European Union may be poised to pass more sanctions against the leaders of the self-declared 'Peoples' Republics' of Donetsk and Lugansk in response to their holding of elections which have not been recognized by Kiev. However, it seems like European leadership is shying away from more sanctions against Russia. RFE/RL reports:

European Union foreign ministers meeting in Brussels on November 17 agreed on the need to impose more sanctions on pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.

The EU foreign ministers asked for proposals to place more Ukrainian separatists on the sanctions list by the end of this month.

The move is intended to show the EU's rejection of the November 2 elections organized by pro-Russian separatists in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of eastern Ukraine.

The sanctions are expected to include freezing assets and imposing travel bans.
