EU extends sanctions against Russia for a year

In a statement today, the European Union approved the renewal of the sanctions imposed on the Crimea and the city of Sevastopol for another year, until June 23, 2022, in response to Russia’s illegal annexation of them.

The statement clarified that the mentioned sanctions restrict the activities and activities of EU citizens and companies in Crimea and Sevastopol, as the EU does not allow the import of products from the Crimea and Sevastopol region.

He pointed out that the sanctions also include preventing citizens and companies of the Union from buying real estate in the regions of Crimea and Sevastopol, and not allowing European cruise passenger ships to pass through the region’s ports except in emergency cases.

The sanctions also prevent the export of some products and technologies used in the energy, transportation and communications sectors to Crimea, and also prevent the extension of the Crimean region with technology used in a number of sectors, especially oil, gas and minerals exploration, extraction and production.

The sanctions include limiting the EU’s economic relations with these two Russian regions.
These sanctions were last extended a year ago, until June 23, 2021.
Following a unilateral referendum, on March 16, 2014, Russia annexed the Crimea peninsula of Ukraine, which was not recognized by the international community, and was followed by the imposition of sanctions on Moscow by the European Union, the United States and a number of countries.
