The 13th package of sanctions aimed by the European Union against Russia enters into force on the second anniversary of the full-scale war of attack in Ukraine that Russia started. The new sanctions package focuses especially on individuals and entities. The list of sanctions now include new entities whose activities are deemed as supporting the war of attack by Russia.

As for exports, the list of sanctions now includes new products that can be used in supporting Russia’s military and technological capability, or in developing Russia’s defence and security sector. In particular, sanctions now cover components relating to the development and production of unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones. Lists of sanctioned exports also include products that could serve Russia’s industrial capacity. For example, newly sanctioned products include various semiconductor devices, electronic integrated circuits, certain cameras and optical equipment, certain electrical conductor devices, as well as electronic components.

The new EU sanctions are included in the Official Journal of the European Union on 23 February 2024.
