European Union figures have been banned from entering Russia, this is in response to sanctions imposed on Moscow over its military actions in Ukraine, Russia's Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.

"The restrictions apply to the top leadership of the European Union including a number of European commissioners and heads of EU military structures as well as the vast majority of members of the European Parliament promoting anti-Russian policies," the ministry said in a statement.
