EU imposes sanctions on senior Russian officials

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union imposed sanctions on Monday on the Russian president's first deputy chief of staff, Vyacheslav Volodin, and the commander of Russian paratroopers, as well two Crimean companies - PJSC Chernomorneftegaz and Feodosia.

Volodin and Vladimir Shamanov were among 13 people added to a list of those facing EU asset freezes and visa bans, as part of EU efforts to pressure Moscow over Ukraine, according to the bloc's official journal.

The full list of new sanctions targets is on: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/HTML/?uri=OJ:JOL_2014_137_R_0002&from=EN
