Ukraine’s territorial integrity: EU sanctions five persons involved in the Russian State Duma elections in Crimea last year

February 22, 2022

On 21 February, the Council of the EU adopted restrictive measures, within the existing sanctions framework, against five more individuals for actively supporting actions and implementing policies that undermine or threaten the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine.

The designated persons are members of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, who were elected to represent the illegally-annexed Crimean peninsula and the City of Sevastopol in 2021, as well as the head and deputy head of the Sevastopol electoral commission.

EU restrictive measures regarding the territorial integrity of Ukraine now apply to a total of 193 persons and 48 entities. Those designated persons and entities are subject to an asset freeze (including a prohibition on making funds available to them) and a travel ban, which prevents them from entering or transiting through the EU.
