Russian war against Ukraine: EU individual sanctions prolonged for six months


On 14 September, the Council of the European Union decided to prolong the restrictive measures targeting those responsible for undermining or threatening the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine for a further six months, until 15 March 2023.

The existing restrictive measures provide for travel restrictions for natural persons, the freezing of assets, and a ban on making funds or other economic resources available to the listed individuals and entities. Sanctions will continue to apply to 1,206 individuals and 108 entities, many of which are targeted in response to Russia’s ongoing unjustified and unprovoked military aggression against Ukraine.

After 24 February 2022, the EU massively expanded sanctions against Russia. In addition to sanctions against top political representatives, oligarchs, the military and propagandists, the EU has adopted unprecedented measures aimed at significantly weakening Russia’s economic base, depriving it of critical technologies and markets, and significantly limiting its ability to wage war.
