EU amends Russia sanctions to protect space industry

The EU has amended its Russia sanctions regime arms embargo to allow for trade in specific pyrotechnics referred to in the Common Military List that are necessary for operating launchers and fuelling satellites. Trade for fuelling launchers will be allowed with EU or Member State programmes and launch service providers, and trade for fuelling satellites with satellite manufacturers established in Member States.

The amendment is made by Council Decision (CFSP) 2015/1764 amending Council Decision 2014/512/CFSP and Council Regulation (EU) 2015/1797 amending Council Regulation 833/2014.
