Implementation of EU sanctions against Russia: Commission adopts proposal for “maintenance and alignment” package

The European Commission has adopted a joint (High Representative-Commission) proposal for a new package of measures to maintain and strengthen the effectiveness of the EU’s six wide-ranging and unprecedented packages of sanctions against Russia.

Today’s “maintenance and alignment” package clarifies several provisions to strengthen legal certainty for operators and enforcement by the Member States. It also further aligns the EU’s sanctions with the allies and partners, in particular in the G7. Importantly, the package reiterates the Commission’s determined stance to protect food security around the globe.

Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, said, “Russia’s brutal war against Ukraine continues unabated. Therefore, we are proposing today to tighten our hard-hitting EU sanctions against the Kremlin, enforce them more effectively and extend them until January 2023. Moscow must continue to pay a high price for its aggression.”
