The relevant provision by reference to which the Minister considers that condition B is met is the European Union’s Council Decision 2014/145/CFSP (as amended) concerning restrictive measures in respect of actions undermining or threatening the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine, and Council Regulation (EU) No 269/2014. The purposes of this provision correspond or are similar to the purposes of the UK’s Russia (Sanctions) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, which have as their purposes to encourage Russia to cease actions destabilising Ukraine or undermining or threatening the territorial integrity, sovereignty or independence of Ukraine. The Minister considers that it is in the public interest to designate (condition C). The Minister certified on 25 May 2022 that conditions B and C continued to be met.
