EU is moving to impose sanctions on 7 Venezuelans close to Maduro

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The European Union will impose sanctions on seven Venezuelan figures close to President Nicolas Maduro, Reuters reported, citing diplomatic sources.

In the words of three diplomats, the European Union will impose economic sanctions on seven other people close to Maduro on Friday, which will freeze their European assets and prevent travel to EU countries.

No further details were immediately available, but sanctions are likely to be announced on Friday, when the sanctions take effect.

Maduro made an official visit to Russia yesterday during which he met Russian President Vladimir Putin, who confirmed Moscow’s support for legitimate institutions in Venezuela and for dialogue between the government and the opposition.
