    The Security Council today established a sanctions regime on Haiti, imposing a targeted arms embargo, travel ban and asset freeze upon individuals and entities designated for such measures, who are responsible for or complicit in actions that threaten the peace, security or stability of the country.

    Unanimously adopting resolution 2653 (2022), (to be issued as document S/RES/2653), the Council decided to establish a Committee of the Security Council consisting of all the members of the 15-member organ, to undertake, among other tasks, the monitoring of the implementations of travel ban, asset freeze and arms embargo measures imposed upon individuals and entities designated by the Committee; to seek and review information regarding them; and to designate individuals and entities to be subject to the aforementioned measures.

    It also requested the Secretary-General to create for an initial period of 13 months, in consultation with the Committee, a group of four experts (“Panel of Experts”) to assist it in carrying out its mandate, and to make the necessary financial and security arrangements to support the work of the Panel.

    Further, the Council affirmed that it would keep the situation in Haiti under continuous review and that it shall be prepared to review the appropriateness of the measures contained in the resolution, including the strengthening, modification, suspension or lifting of the measures. It went on to request, in this regard, the Secretary-General, in close coordination with the Panel of Experts, to conduct, no later than 15 September 2023, an assessment of progress achieved.

    The Council of the European Union on 6 October 2022 adopted Decision (CFSP) 2022/1908, amended the title of Decision (CFSP) 2022/266 and extended the geographical scope of the restrictions contained therein to cover all the non-government-controlled areas.

    • Council Regulation (EU) 2022/1904 of 6 October 20222 amending Regulation (EU) No 833/2014 concerning restrictive measures in view of Russia’s actions destabilising situation in Ukraine

    The Council of the European Union on 6 October 2022 adopted Decision (CFSP) 2022/1909 in response to the Russian Federation’s further aggression against Ukraine and the organisation of illegal ‘referenda’ in the non-government controlled areas that are currently occupied by the Russian Federation.

    Decision (CFSP) 2022/1909 extends the list of restricted items which might contribute to the Russian Federation’s military and technological enhancement. Decision (CFSP) 2022/ 1909 prohibits goods subject to prohibition that are covered by Regulation (EU) No 258/2012. In this context, Regulation (EU) No 833/ 2014 is to be treated as lex specialis in the event of a conflict and takes precedence over Regulation (EU) 2019/125.

    The European Union is committed to avoiding threats to nuclear safety and security. Thus, none of the measures in this Regulation seek to undermine the safety of civil nuclear capabilities or civil nuclear cooperation.

    In view of mitigating adverse consequences on energy supply to third countries and reducing prices driven by market conditions, Decision (CFSP) 2022/1909 introduces an exemption from the prohibition to provide technical assistance, brokering services or financing or financial assistance, related to the maritime transport to third countries of crude oil or petroleum products which originate or are exported from Russia – purchased at or below a pre-established price cap agreed by the Price Cap Coalition.

    The exemption from the prohibition to provide maritime services is conditional upon the Council introducing the price cap into Annex XI to Decision 2014/512/CFSP. In deciding whether to introduce that price cap, the Council will take into account the effectiveness of the measure in terms of its expected results, international adherence to and informal alignment with the price cap mechanism, and its potential impact on the Union and its Member States. The Price cap should apply to the maritime transport to third countries of crude oil and certain petroleum products and to the provision of related services. certain Member States to continue importing crude oil and petroleum products from Russia due to their specific situation or in the event that the supply of crude oil by pipeline from Russia is interrupted for reasons outside their control. Additionally, specific projects which are essential for the energy security of certain third countries may be exempted from the price cap under certain circumstances.

    In addition to the existing prohibitions related to the provision of services for the maritime transport of crude oil and certain petroleum products to third countries, Decision (CFSP) 2022/1909 further prohibits the maritime transport of such goods to third countries. That prohibition should not be applicable unless and until the Council adopts the necessary measures making the price cap applicable.

    Decision (CFSP) 2022/1909 adds to the list of Russian State-owned or controlled entities that are subject to the transaction ban that prohibits the prohibition of any sort of economically valuable benefit the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping. It extends the port access and lock ban in the territory of the Union to vessels certified by the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping.

    Decision (CFSP) 2022/1909 removes the threshold for the existing prohibition on the provision of crypto-asset wallet, account or custody services to Russian persons and residents, thereby banning the provision of such services regardless of the total value of such crypto-assets.

    Decision (CFSP) 2022/1909 furthermore extends the existing prohibition of the provision of certain services to the Russian Federation by banning the provision of architectural and engineering services, as well as of IT consultancy services and legal advisory services. In line with the Central Products Classification as set out in Statistical Office of the United Nations, Statistical Papers, Series M, No 77, CPC prov., 1991, ‘architectural and engineering services’ covers both architectural and engineering services as well as integrated engineering services, urban planning and landscape architectural services and engineering-related scientific and technical consulting services. The provision of technical assistance related to goods exported to Russia remains allowed, provided that the sale, supply, transfer or export of such goods is not prohibited under this Regulation at the time at which such technical assistance is provided. ‘IT consultancy services’ covers consultancy services related to the installation of computer hardware, including assistance services to the clients in the installation of computer hardware (i.e. physical equipment) and computer networks, and software implementation services, including all services involving consultancy services on, development of and implementation of software. ‘Legal advisory services’ covers: the provision of legal advice to customers in non-contentious matters, including commercial transactions, involving the application or interpretation of law; participation with or on behalf of clients in commercial transactions, negotiations and other dealings with third parties; and preparation, execution and verification of legal documents. ‘Legal advisory services’ does not include any representation, advice, preparation of documents or verification of documents in the context of legal representation services, namely in matters or proceedings before administrative agencies, courts or other duly constituted official tribunals, or in arbitral or mediation proceedings.
