Ukraine: EU agrees fifth package of restrictive measures against Russia
The European Commission welcomes today's agreement by the Council to adopt a fifth package of restrictive measures against Putin's regime in response to its brutal aggression against Ukraine and its people. 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.
