EU renews sanctions on Crimea & Sevastopol

Posted on: 23/06/2017

The EU has renewed its territorial sanctions on Crimea and Sevastopol for another year, until 23 June 2018.  The sanctions include prohibitions on the import of products originating in, export of certain goods and technologies to, investment in, and tourism in Crimea and Sevastopol. The sanctions are a response to what the EU says is “the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol by the Russian Federation”. On renewing the sanctions (statement here), the EU Council reiterated that the EU “remains fully committed to fully implement its non-recognition policy” of any competing claim to Ukraine’s sovereignty over the regions.
