March 5, 2019: EU extends Ukraine misappropriation sanctions

The Council extended until 6 March 2020 the asset freezes directed against 12 persons identified as responsible for the misappropriation of Ukrainian state funds or for the abuse of office causing a loss to Ukrainian public funds. The restrictive measures against one person were not extended. This decision is based on the annual review of the measures.

This restrictive measures regime has been in place since 5 March 2014, and has been extended on a yearly basis since then.

The legal acts will be published in the Official Journal on 5 March 2019.
