European Union sanction list swells  in response to Russia's aggression against Ukraine

Since 2021, the world has witnessed an unprecedented increase in the number of sanctions imposed by regulators around the world. According to Open Sanctions, the open-source international sanctions database, the European Union sanction list has increased the number of sanctioned individuals and organisations by 142% since 2021, from 4,445 to 10,740. Russia’s aggression against Ukraine has served as a catalyst for an increased international response, with numerous countries imposing sanctions and embargoes to condemn these actions.

Subsequent to Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014, only the EU itself has imposed sanctions on 1,800 individuals and entities linked to Russia, according to a report by the European Banking Authority (EBA). These measures are unprecedented in scale and scope, says the EBA.
