Germany's Lindner: Russia faces more sanctions if doesn't change course

·1 min read

BERLIN, March 2 (Reuters) - Russia will face further sanctions from the international community if it does not change course from its invasion of Ukraine, German Finance Minister Christian Lindner said on Wednesday after talks with European counterparts.

"We will step up the pressure if the Russian leadership does not change course," Lindner said in a statement, adding the Russian economy was already feeling the impact of measures taken so far.

"We should also take steps to prevent listed individuals and institutions from switching to unregulated crypto assets," he said, adding that war and sanctions would affect energy prices and supply chains in Europe but that it was prepared. (Writing by Madeline Chambers Editing by Mark Heinrich)
