The 28 EU leaders agreed to additional steps, including punishing Russian firms, at a summit on Wednesday after Moscow failed to halt its alleged support for pro-Kremlin rebels in eastern Ukraine.

They target both individuals and firms providing material or financial support to efforts to undermine Ukraine’s sovereignty as well as to those responsible for the annexation of Crimea or the destabilisation of eastern Ukraine.
