This provision is included into the drafts of five registered resolutions of the EU legislative body concerning the cases of Crimean Tatar leaders Akhtem Chiygoz, Ilmi Umerov and journalist Mykola Semena, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrinform.
"The European Parliament once again notes that the EU sanctions against Russia imposed due to the illegal annexation of Crimea will remain until the sovereignty of Ukraine over Crimea is restored. The EP also calls on the EU Council to work out the next package of sanctions against Russia, which will be activated, if Russia refuses to stop persecuting the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatars and continues to commit other human rights violations in Crimea," the draft resolution reads.
In addition, the MEPs plan to urge the EU Council to expand economic and personal sanctions and impose a visa ban on persons responsible for trumped-up political cases and illegal sentences in the occupied Crimea.
