EU extends the validity of sanctions over actions against Ukraine’s territorial integrity

The Council of the European Union prolonged by 6 months the application of EU restrictive measures targeting actions against Ukraine‘s territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence.

The asset freeze and travel bans against 149 persons and 37 entities have been extended until 15 March 2016.

The assessment of the situation did not justify a change in the regime of sanctions nor in the list of persons and entities under restrictive measures. One deceased person was removed from the list.

The legal acts are available in the EU Official Journal of 15 September 2015.
