In total 21 people were added to the EU list of sanctions. At the moment this list includes 157 Russian and Ukrainian citizens, and 37 organizations.

Measures against Russian and Crimean officials and companies were imposed by the EU after the peninsula was annexed to Russia in March 2014. US imposed sanctions on the peninsula in December 2014.
 
All included in the list of sanctions are considered by Brussels, Western countries and the United States responsible for "actions undermining or threatening the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine."
