EU COREPER AGREES TO RENEW TARGETED UKRAINE SANCTIONS FOR 6 MONTHS

The EU Committee of Permanent Representatives (part of the Council of the EU) has agreed to renew its Russia sanctions, targeted at people and entities said to be “responsible for undermining the territorial integrity, independence or security of Ukraine” for a further 6 months. The sanctions impose EU-wide asset freezes and travel bans on 151 people and 37 entities, and were due to expire on 15 September (see previous blog).

The sanctions are imposed by Council Regulation (EU) 269/2014 and Council Decision 2014/145/CFSP (as amended) and are all on the ‘sanctions in force’ section of this blog.
