Anti-Russian sanctions were adopted by the EU countries in relation to the financial, energy and defense sectors of the Russian Federation.
The European Union decided to extend the sanctions against Russia for a period of six months until July 31, 2022. This follows from the statement of the EU Council.
Note that the extension of economic sanctions against the Russian Federation was adopted during the December summit against the background of Russia's alleged refusal to follow the Minsk agreements.
In addition, the Council of the European Union also urged the Kremlin to return to the implementation of the Minsk agreements.
Recall that anti-Russian sanctions were adopted by the EU countries in relation to the financial, energy and defense sectors of the Russian Federation.
They were first introduced in 2014 after Russia joined Crimea for a year, but subsequently they were repeatedly extended every six months.
In particular, the sanctions provide for restricting access to the primary and secondary EU capital markets for a number of Russian banks.
Also banned hit and any financial assistance in intermediary relations with sanctioned banks. In addition, the import and export of dual-use goods from the defense sector, especially in the energy cluster, is prohibited.
