On 3 June, 2022, the European Union (EU) adopted a sixth sanction package against Russia. The new sanctions are primarily aimed at phasing out Russian oil imports to the EU by the end of 2022.
Furthermore, the list of designated parties is expanded to include a number of important Russian banks, media companies, and a number of persons and entities linked to the Kremlin. In addition, this package focuses on the Russian defence and security sector by extending the list of so-called “dual-use” goods.
Sanctions against Belarus are also being expanded.
