Restrictive measures against further twelve persons who threaten the sovereignty of Ukraine

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has decided to expand the list of persons targeted by restrictive measures for actions that undermine or threaten the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine. A further twelve persons have been added to the list.  

 

The decision is a formalisation of Foreign Minister Børge Brende’s announcement on 21 March that Norway would align itself with the further restrictive measures adopted by the EU that day. Russia has, despite the clear and persistent signals sent by the international community, continued to violate Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, in breach of the fundamental principles of international law concerning peace and security.

Russia’s actions pose a serious threat to European security and stability, and clear reactions from the international community are essential. The EU’s restrictive measures are part of the international condemnation of Russia’s actions, and Norway’s decision to align itself with the latest list of persons helps to strengthen the collective response to the Russian violations of international law.

On 26 March, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs adopted amendments to the regulations on restrictive measures in respect of actions undermining or threatening the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine. The amendments to the regulations serve to implement the EU’s restrictive measures in Norwegian law.

The restrictive measures include travel restrictions and the freezing of funds and economic resources of a further twelve persons, among them Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, two of President Putin’s advisers, Sergey Glazyev and Vladislav Surkov, Speaker of the Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko, Speaker of the State Duma Sergei Naryshkin, and head of the Russian Federal State news agency Dmitry Kiselyov.

Any violations of the provisions of the regulations are punishable by fines or imprisonment. The restrictive measures enter into force when the regulations are announced.

The amended regulations will be available here (in Norwegian only).
