According to the politician, the EU has a basis for imposing sanctions in case the “red lines” are crossed in Ankara.

“On the basis of the eighth package of sanctions against Russia, there is a possibility of imposing sanctions on Turkish legal entities found to be violating sanctions against Russia by exporting European products to it,” Mitsotakis quotes Ekathimerini.

Earlier, the EU announced a ban on the export of luxury goods to Russia, including cars worth more than €50,000, as well as expensive equipment, jewelry, perfumes, bags, precious stones, delicacies and alcohol.

In addition, according to Politico, citing four EU diplomats, the new package of EU sanctions may include a ban on the import of diamonds and luxury goods from Russia.
