Russia’s war on Ukraine: EU adopts sixth package of sanctions against Russia

The European Commission welcomes the adoption of the sixth package of restrictive measures against Russia. Sanctions are among the EU’s most visible, direct and powerful responses to Russia’s brutal and unprovoked attack on Ukraine, including systemic violence and atrocities against the civilian population. This package also imposes further sanctions against Belarus considering its involvement in this aggression.

Together with the previous five packages, the sanctions adopted today are unprecedented and designed to further increase economic pressure on Russia and undermine its ability to wage its war on Ukraine. Like with previous sanctions packages, they have been coordinated with international partners.

A press release is available online and a Q&A will be also available later on June 3, 2022.
