The NUG welcomes the 6th round of EU sanctions against 9 individuals and 7 entities in response to escalation of violence, human rights violations and crimes against humanity.

The 9 individuals include the Minister of Energy and high-ranking officers from the military, home affairs, police force, members of SAC and arms brokers. The 7 entities include Military arms procurement bodies and private companies supplying fuel and arms to the military.

These new sanctions are significant measures to tackle a worsening conflict and in particular ongoing air strikes against civilians amid a range of other barbaric attacks by the military. The junta has been indiscriminately targeting civilians and villages with the use of heavy weapons and artillery air strikes. Coordinated and targeted sanctions such as these are necessary to lessen human rights violations and crimes against humanity by the military regime.

We are grateful for the work of the EU government in placing these important sanctions to slow the military’s capacity to continue their campaign of terror and repression. We are hopeful that further targeted sanctions will follow, and we hope that more countries follow suit. We once again request that all governments and the international community immediately place aggressive, targeted sanctions on the military regime and those who support and supply them.

Myanmar Spring Revolution will prevail!
