Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the European Union Mykola Tochytskyi has said the Committee of the Permanent Representatives of the Governments of the Member States to the European Union (COREPER) has endorsed a 12-month extension of a ban for European companies to invest in Russia-occupied Crimea and import goods and services from the peninsula.

"I welcome an endorsement by the EU permanent representatives of the extension of 'Crimean sanctions' and I hope for its early approval by the EU Council. I urge the EU to increase pressure on the Russian Federation in response to new repressions against the Crimean Tatars and a decree of the Russian leadership on the 'passportization' of Ukrainians in Crimea," he wrote on Twitter on June 12, 2019.

Earlier media wrote that Filaret wants to renew Kyiv Patriarchate.
