EU sanctions on Russia and Belarus following the invasion of Ukraine
The European Union announces restrictive measures against Putin’s regime in response to its brutal aggression against Ukraine and its people. Other measures are announced to support Ukrainian students, young people, teachers and educators.
As part of the 5th package of restrictive measures against Putin’s regime, the Commission will terminate participation in all ongoing grant agreements to Russian public bodies or related entities, and suspend all related payments, under Erasmus+. One of the measures is to exclude Russia from public contracts and European money, and bring legal clarifications and enforcement.
Further to measures previously announced in research and education, the Commission will terminate participation in all ongoing grant agreements to Russian public bodies or related entities, and suspend all related payments, under Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe, Euratom and Erasmus+. No new contracts or agreements with Russian public bodies or related entities will be concluded under these programmes.
Mariya GABRIEL, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, has announced measures to support Ukrainian students, young people, teachers and educators in these extremely challenging times. The new measures laid out will ensure the greatest flexibility possible in implementing projects towards Ukrainian students and higher education staff.
The EU stands united in its solidarity with Ukraine and will continue to support Ukraine and its people together with its international partners, including through additional political, financial and humanitarian support.
