Swiss adopt new EU sanctions on RussiaAlina Hashmi
Berlin: On August 3, the Swiss government imposed further sanctions against Russia over the war in Ukraine. “The new measures primarily concern a ban on buying, importing, or transporting gold and gold products from Russia. Services in connection with these goods are also prohibited,” a government statement said. “To avoid disruption to payment channels, the Federal Council (cabinet) has made two new exceptions with respect to transactions related to agricultural products and oil supplies to third countries, as has the EU,” it said.
