EU discusses sanctions against Mir payment system

The EU authorities do not rule out that the Russian payment system "Mir" may fall under sanctions, said lead spokesperson for the EU external affairs Peter Stano.

According to the diplomat, the EU countries are discussing these issues, but so far these discussions are "of a confidential nature."

Nonetheless, German MEP Gunnar Beck noted the sanctions would be ineffective against the Russian payment system, since it operates in those countries that are unlikely to follow the EU .

Peter Stano also commented on media reports about pressure from Washington and Brussels on the Turkish authorities to crack down on "Russian sanctions evasion." He stressed that Turkey should coordinate its foreign policy with the EU, as it is a candidate for joining the union.
