The President of the European Commission Ursula Von Der Leyen is speaking in Brussels to outline sanctions to "seriously degrade the Russian economy".

She says:

- We will freeze Russian assets in the EU and stop the access of Russian banks to the European financial market
- The measures will impact Russia severely, increasing capital outflow, raising inflation and gradually eroding its industrial basis
- We will weaken Russia's technological position in key areas from high-tech components to cutting-edge software
