EU Sanctions Developer

MINSK — The European Union imposed sanctions against the Belarussian company Yunivest-M on Friday.

"We cannot comment on the imposition of the sanctions, we still do not understand ourselves," a spokesman told Interfax.

The EU imposed sanctions on Yunivest-M, its subsidiaries Yunis-Oil and YunivestStroiInvest and their ultimate beneficiary Anatoly Ternavsky. Yunivest-M is one of Belarus' largest developers, building housing in Minsk and owning a number of restaurants. The investment portfolio of Yunivest-M is more than $1 billion, according to the company's website, and the company has been among the 10 largest taxpayers in Belarus for the last five years.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
