EU Sanctions against Russia: Sanctions against Annex I individuals and entities extended to 15 March 2023
The EU Council has extended the duration of the sanctions against more than 1,200 individuals and entities in response to Russia’s invasion of the Ukraine for a further six months, until 15 March 2023.
This follows the recent extension of the sectoral sanctions to 31 January 2023 (see our update on that extension here: EU Sanctions against Russia: Sectoral Sanctions extended by a further 6 months to 31 January 2023).
As part of this week’s extension, the EU Council has updated information on 550 of the entries in Annex I to the relevant Regulation (Regulation (EU) No 269/2014) and removed 11 entries from that Annex.
