The European Union (EU) has announced the extension of personal sanctions against Russia for another six months. Until September 15, 2023, measures will be extended against individuals deemed responsible for subversion or threat to Ukraine's territorial integrity, sovereignty, and independence.

According to the EU Council's press service, the measures involve freezing of assets, travel restrictions, and prohibition of the provision of funds or other economic resources to the people and entities on the list. In total, the sanctions apply to 1,473 individuals and 205 organizations.

The EU Council emphasized its commitment to support Ukraine and its sovereignty, stating that Russia must put an end to its aggressive actions. Hungary had previously attempted to block the sanctions against Russian oligarchs, but no names have been removed from the restricted list.

The EU Council believes that sanctions are an effective tool in supporting Ukraine and protecting its interests. Therefore, they will continue to employ this tool to achieve their goal of ensuring the safety and independence of Ukraine.
