EU Extends Sanctions for the Use of Chemical Weapons

The EU Council has extended all sanctions for the "use of chemical weapons" until October 16, 2021, as it follows from the statement of the EU Council. The sanctions concern nine people who  are associated with the use of chemical weapons in Syria and Salisbury, according to the EU's position.

      “Currently, these sanctions are in effect against nine people - five associated with chemical attacks in Syria and four with the use of a nerve agent in Salisbury. Also, sanctions were imposed on one organization - the Syrian Center for Scientific Research,” - said in a statement on the website of the EU Council.

      Individuals are prohibited from entering the EU, all their banking assets in the EU are frozen. Legal entities are denied access to funding from the European Union. The sanctions were imposed in 2018 after the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury. The British authorities are convinced that they were poisoned with the Novichok substance developed in the USSR. In 2019, sanctions were extended.
