EU restrictive measures

Since March 2014, the EU has progressively imposed restrictive measures targeting Russia.

During the years, the EU has imposed different types of restrictive measures:

  • diplomatic measures
  • individual restrictive measures (asset freezes and travel restrictions)
  • restrictions on economic relations with Crimea and Sevastopol, and with the non-government controlled areas of Donetsk and Luhansk
  • economic sanctions
  • restrictions on media
  • restrictions on economic cooperation.

See more information at the European Council's information page for EU's restrictive measures in response to the crisis in Ukraine.

EU expands sanctions against Russia/Ukraine

Following yesterday’s referendums held in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions in East Ukraine and in the absence of any steps towards the de-escalation of the crisis, the EU Foreign Affairs Council met today in Brussels. The EU Ministers decided to broaden the scope of sanctions, targeting persons responsible for actions that undermine or threaten the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine, undermine the security and obstruct the work of international organisations in Ukraine.

· 13 more individuals are faced with visa bans and asset freezes
· 2 entities in Crimea and Sevastopol are subject to asset freezes
