Von der Leyen: EU preparing new Russia sanctions

STORY: Von der Leyen did not provide details of what measures a new round of EU sanctions could contain.

The EU last month gave a final approval to its eighth batch of sanctions over the invasion, including more restrictions on trade in steel and technology products.

At a joint news conference with the prime ministers of Finland and Estonia, and the deputy prime minister of Sweden, von der Leyen said Russia's attacks on Ukrainian civilian infrastructure amounted to war crimes.
