The EU targets Russia’s LNG ghost fleet with sanctions as concern mounts about hybrid attacks

Associated Press

BRUSSELS (AP) — The European Union has slapped new sanctions on Russia over its war on Ukraine. It’s targeting Moscow’s shadow fleet of tankers moving liquefied natural gas through Europe and several companies. The bloc is also concerned about hybrid attacks in Europe by Russia. The EU estimates that about 4-to-6 billion cubic meters of Russian LNG was shipped to third countries via EU ports last year. Russia is suspected of running a “ghost fleet” to evade sanctions and help finance the war. Several companies were added to the EU’s list, including some in China, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates. Many are accused of circumventing sanctions or providing sensitive equipment to Russia.
