EU to renew Russia targeted sanctions

COREPER, part of the EU Council, has decided to renew the EU’s asset freezes and travel bans against people and entities said to be “responsible for undermining the territorial integrity or sovereignty of Ukraine” for a further 6 months, until 15 March 2017.  The Council must still approve the decision to renew the sanctions, which were due to expire on 15 September.  This follows the EU’s decision in July to renew its sectoral sanctions against Russia until 31 January 2017 (see previous blog).
