EU Confirms Further Economic Sanctions Against Russia

    September 2014

    On 11th September, the European Union officially confirmed a further round of economic sanctions against Russia in response to the continued crisis in the Ukraine.

    The EU delayed enforcement of these restrictive measures in order to leave time to assess whether the cease fire in the Ukraine would hold. The sanctions have now been confirmed by the Council of the European Union, and have taken effect upon publication of Regulations No 959/2014 and Regulations 960/2014 in the Official Journal dated 12 September 2014.
