Council extends targeted economic sanctions on Belarus for human rights violations and instrumentalisation of migrants

The Council of the EU has imposed restrictive measures on an additional 17 individuals and 11 entities, extending the sanctions on Belarus for the fifth time over continued human rights abuses and the instrumentalisation of migrants, through the adoption of Council Implementing CFSP Decision 2021/2125 and Council Implementing Regulation 2021/2124.

The new measures target (i) prominent members of the judicial branch, including the Supreme Court, and the State Control Committee, (ii) propaganda outlets; (iii) high-ranking political officials of the Lukashenko regime; and (iv) companies (such as Belavia Airlines), tour operators and hotels that have helped incite and organise illegal border crossings through Belarus to the EU.
