The EC proposes that three more Russian banks fall under the sanctions and that a complete ban on transactions of the Russian Bank for Regional Development be introduced.

An extension of export restrictions is envisaged, especially for dual-use goods, including chemicals and electronics.

The proposal also includes cutting off Russia's access to unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as banning the direct export of drone engines to Russia and other countries, such as Iran, that could supply drones to Russia.

The commission proposes that four more Russian TV stations be taken off the European airwaves and all other distribution platforms.

The proposed sanctions include measures against Russia's energy and mining sectors.
