Council Decision (CFSP) 2022/1271 of 21 July 2022

Council Decision (CFSP) 2022/1271 of 21 July 2022 amending Decision 2014/512/CFSP concerning restrictive measures in view of Russia’s actions destabilising the situation in Ukraine

On 21 July 2022, in view of the gravity of the situation, and in response to Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine, the EU considered it appropriate to introduce further restrictive measures. In particular, it is appropriate to prohibit the direct or indirect import, purchase or transfer of gold. This prohibition applies to Russian-origin gold, exported from Russia after the entry into force of the Decision. Similarly, the Union measures do not prevent third countries and their nationals operating outside of the Union from purchasing pharmaceutical or medical products from Russia. Further action by the Union is needed in order to implement certain measures.

Decision 2014/512/CFSP should therefore be amended accordingly.
