EU extends sanctions on Belarus weapons and ammunition exports

The European Commission commends the Council’s decision to adopt further targeted restrictive measures in response to Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine and Belarus’s involvement in the aggression.

The extended sanctions include a ban on exporting highly sensitive goods and technologies to Belarus, contributing to its military and technological advancement. Additionally, an export ban on firearms, ammunition, and goods and technology suitable for aviation and space industry use has been imposed.
