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.
