President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has called on the European Union to impose a seventh package of sanctions against Russia.

He said this at a joint press conference in Kyiv with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen on Saturday, European Pravda reports.

"The war continues, so a seventh package of sanctions is needed," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.

He believes sanctions should be imposed on all Russian officials and judges who are working on repression.

"Sanctions are also needed against companies that are helping the Russian state in one way or another - whether in the military sphere or in suppressing democracy," Zelenskyy said.

He also insisted that the EU should completely abandon Russian energy resources.

"The EU must work for its own benefit to completely eliminate Russian energy resources. This is a fundamental security issue for all," Zelenskyy said.

Dmytro Kuleba, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, signed a letter to the European Union setting out Ukraine's vision for the seventh package of sanctions.
