Ursula von der Leyen, the President of the EU Commission announced on Sunday the European Union is shutting down the EU airspace for Russian-owned, Russian registered or Russian-controlled aircraft.
The order includes private jets of the Russian oligarchs.
The EU is also banning state-owned Russia Today and Sputnik from broadcasting in the European Union.
Only Western state-owned media will be allowed.
Ursula von der Leyen also announced that the EU is working on more tools to ban toxic and harmful disinformation in Europe.
Does anyone beleive this will end when the war is over?
Second, we will ban the Kremlin’s media machine in the EU.
The state-owned Russia Today and Sputnik, and their subsidiaries,
will no longer be able to spread their lies to justify Putin’s war.
We are developing tools to ban their toxic and harmful disinformation in Europe. pic.twitter.com/7RcPEn6E14
