On 1 March 2022, the UK government issued additional sanctions on Russia, which expand sanctions that have been in place since 31 July 2014. The full statutory guidance on the new sanctions is available on the GOV.UK website

This includes sanctions on designated persons (incl. immigration sanctions), financial sanctions, import restrictions and transport sanctions. They also include export restrictions and prohibitions that build on existing export controls. Contravening or circumventing these sanctions is a criminal offence. 

The export sanctions include prohibitions and restrictions on: 

  • The export to Russia of military or dual use goods, software and technology 
  • The provision of technical assistance that enables or facilitates the conduct of certain military activity
  • The export to Russia of certain goods and technology for use in the energy sector, particularly for off-shore drilling and exploration
  • The export to Russia of certain 'critical industry' goods and technology and aviation and space goods and technology
  • The export to Crimea of infrastructure-related exports
