EU prolongs sanctions over actions against Ukraine’s territorial integrity

EU prolongs sanctions over actions against Ukraine’s territorial integrity

The EU has prolonged sanctions against Ukrainian and Russian citizens involved in undermining or threatening the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine for a further six months, until 15 September 2017.

The official EU statement says that “the assessment of the situation did not justify a change in the sanctions regime.”

The EU Council reviewed the list of sanctioned persons and removed two deceased persons – Gennadiy Tsypkalov, former “LNR Prime Minister” who was found hanging in his cell, and warlord Arseniy Pavlov aka “Motorola” who was killed in a car explosion.

Currently, the list applies to 150 persons and 37 entities. The measures consist of asset freezes and a travel ban.

These restrictive measures were introduced in March 2014 and were last extended in September 2016.

Apart from them., EU measures in place in response to the crisis in Ukraine include:

  • – economic sanctions targeting specific sectors of the Russian economy, currently in place until 31 July 2017;
  • – restrictive measures in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol, limited to the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol, currently in place until 23 June 2017.
