WSJ: EU proposed to add two of Putin's daughters to the sanctions list


The European Commission has proposed that two daughters of Russian President Vladimir Putin be added to a list of new sanctions against Moscow, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the European Commission's President Ursula von der Leyen on Tuesday presented the fifth package of EU sanctions against Russia. The new anti-Moscow sanctions still need to be approved by all EU Member States.

The EU wants to put more pressure on Moscow to stop its military action in Ukraine. That is why the EU is adding more and more important people linked to the Kremlin to its sanctions list. 

Putin has not spoken publicly about his family. Officially, Putin has two daughters. It is not known for sure whether Putin has more children. It is not clear whether the daughters who have been officially acknowledged by Putin are the target of EU sanctions, The Wall Street Journal reported. 

In 2013, Putin and his wife announced that their marriage was over. They were married for 30 years.
