The EU has introduced new sanctions measures, namely the following:

• The addition of 11 ‘rebel’ names to the Ukraine asset freeze list; and

• The introduction of an asset freeze in relation to South Sudan, currently listing two individuals.

II. Expansion of Ukraine asset freeze -

The EU has decided to add another 11 persons who are deemed responsible for pro-separatist activities in Ukraine to the list of parties subject to a visa ban and asset freeze under Regulation 269/2014 (i.e. in relation to actions undermining or threatening the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine). This change was introduced through Implementing Regulation 753/2014,1 which entered into force on 12 July 2014, and brings the total count of this designated parties list to 72 persons and two entities. (This designated parties list is separate from the EU asset freeze list in relation to alleged misappropriation of Ukrainian state funds and human rights violations in Ukraine, which currently features 22 persons.)
