The European Union has announced that it is extending the sanctions against Russia for six months – until January 31, 2023.

"These sanctions, which were first imposed in 2014 in response to Russia's actions destabilizing the situation in Ukraine, have been significantly expanded since February 2022 due to Russia's unprovoked and unjustified military aggression against Ukraine", according to the press release of the EU Council.

To date, there are seven packages of sanctions against certain sectors of the economy and against Russians, mainly officials, who support the war in Ukraine.

· The EU introduced the latest restrictions on July 21, 2022. The new sanctions list includes Sberbank, the Unarmia movement, the Night Wolves bike club, as well as State Duma deputy from Chechnya Adam Delimkhanov, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin, actors Vladimir Mashkov and Sergey Bezrukov and others.

· A ban on transactions with Russian gold was also introduced and the sanctions list of goods that can be used in the defense industry was expanded.
