The European Union reached an outline agreement on Friday to impose the first economic sanctions on Moscow since the downing of a Malaysian airliner and the deaths of 298 people onboard in an area of eastern Ukraine held by Russian-backed separatists. Germany, Europe's biggest economy, sold about 36 billion euros of goods to Russia last year, almost one-third of the EU's total #United States #India #Business #Japan #Brazil #Arabic #markets #Argentina #Latin America #Ukraine #german
