The European Union has eased the sixth package of sanctions against the Russian Federation, excluding from it a ban on access to cloud services. About it informs Mikhail Podolyak, Advisor to the Head of the President’s Office.
“First, the EU Council announces the blocking of EU cloud services for Russia in the 6th package of sanctions. Then the EU Council edits the messages, removing the mention of cloud technologies from there. No clarifications or clarifications from officials. We must increase sanctions pressure. Do not weaken”, he noted.
Earlier it was reported that Washington would not agree to lift some of the sanctions against Moscow in exchange for lifting the blockade of Ukrainian ports for grain exports.
