Newsline: European Union bans priority access of Russian diplomats

A day after Moscow unleashed airstrikes on Ukraine, Russian diplomats were banned from priority access to the European Union (EU). (https://www.msn.com/en-in/news/other/after-moscow-s-war-on-ukraine-european-union-bans-priority-access-of-russian-diplomats/ar-AAUh2Nz) Leaders of the 27-nation bloc agreed to impose new economic sanctions on Russia, joining the United States and Britain in trying to punish President Vladimir Putin and his allies for unleashing a full-scale attack on Ukraine. However, the bloc held back from taking the harshest measures sought by Ukraine and split over just how far to take the sanctions, leaving details to be worked out in the coming days.
