EU extends sanctions against Russia for annexation of Crimea



The European Union Monday rolled over for another year’s tough sanctions imposed over Russia’s 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine. The measures prohibit certain exports and imports, and ban investment and tourism services by EU-based companies in Crimea.

The bloc said in a statement that the Council of EU member states extended the restrictive measures in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol by Russia until June 23, 2019.

The EU reiterated that it does not recognise and continues to condemn this violation of international law. The sanctions were imposed in the wake of Russia’s annexation of the strategic Black Sea peninsula in March 2014.
