The EU Council (the “Council”) has decided to extend the EU restrictive measures targeting actions against Ukraine’s territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence. These sanctions consist of an asset freeze and a travel ban against 146 persons and 37 entities. They have been extended until 15 March 2017. According to the Council its assessment of the situation did not justify a change in the regime, nor in the list of persons and entities listed on it.
