EU sanctions against Russia The DUE DILIGENCE Compliance challenge
The EU has progressively imposed sanctions and restrictive measures against Russia since 2014 in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea.
In March 2015, EU leaders decided to link the existing economic sanctions regime to the complete implementation of the Minsk agreements.
Since Russia has never fully implemented the agreements, the EU has successively extended the sanctions.
In 2022, the EU adopted new sanctions to respond to Russia’s decision to recognise the non-government controlled areas of Donetsk and Luhansk and to invade Ukraine.

The UDHR continues to be the foundation of all international human rights law. Its 30 articles provide the principles and building blocks of current and future human rights conventions, treaties and other legal instruments.
