BRUSSELS – The European Union imposed chemical weapons sanctions on nine Russian and Syrian officials on Monday including the chief of the GRU military intelligence agency.

The EU said the Russians, two agents and the head and the deputy head of the GRU, were responsible for “possession, transport and use” of the nerve agent used in the attack in Salisbury, England last March.
