“This is a further element of sanctions imposed on Russia and its citizens in connection with the brutal war in Ukraine, due to the fact that the Russian state today constitutes a threat to international security,” Kaminski said.

The West imposed stringent sanctions on Russia after President Vladimir Putin ordered troops into Ukraine in 2022.

Kaminski said the decision was made following the publication on September 8 of European Commission guidelines for banning entry of cars registered in Russia into the EU, PAP reported.
