The EU has imposed limited further sanctions on Russia over its behaviour in Ukraine.

From September 12th, the EU has augmented its sanctions against Russia, by restricting access to the EU financial sector for state-owned oil and defence companies; further restricting it for banks; expanding export restrictions for dual-use technologies and oil exploration; and extending the travel ban and asset freeze to further individuals, and until March 2015. As before, the economic sanctions are due to remain in force until July 31st 2015, subject to a review by October 31st 2014. They continue to apply only to new business. As we expected, the new EU measures are limited to already sanctioned sectors.

The EU agreed on the new sanctions in principle on September 5th, in the wake of evidence of direct Russian participation in armed action against Ukraine, and they were originally due to take effect on September 9th. However, the announcement by the two sides in the conflict of a ceasefire and peace plan made it initially appear less likely that they would be brought into effect, after some EU member states argued successfully for a delay. As a minimum, some countries sought clarity over a process and conditions for possibly relaxing the new sanctions.
