Reading Time: < 1 minute

Financial Times – Senior Brussels officials are discussing the creation of an EU-wide sanctions authority, as they push for tougher and more consistent enforcement of penalties related to the war in Ukraine.

EU sanctions policy has been hindered by uneven enforcement. While the European Commission proposes any measures, which take force if approved by all EU capitals, their implementation falls to national authorities in the 27 member states.

The commission was writing to several member states asking them to report on their enforcement of the EU’s Russia-related sanctions, she said.
