EU Prolongs Sanctions against Russia for One Year

EPA / UPG

The European Union has extended restrictive measures against Crimea and Sevastopol for a year as part of a policy of not recognizing the peninsula’s reunification with Russia, according to the statement of the EU Council, TASS reports.

On June 11, ambassadors of EU member states agreed to prolong restrictive measures against Russia on Crimea. The decision is formalized by a "written procedure" without discussion.

The European Union imposed sanctions on Russia in connection with events in Ukraine in 2014. The EU sanctions policy includes three independent directions: visa restrictions against Russian citizens, economic sectoral sanctions against a number of Russian state-owned companies in the oil, defense and financial sectors, as well as restrictive measures against Crimea. The first two sanction blocks are renewed once every six months, while measures against Crimea — once a year.
