COUNCIL DECISION (CFSP) 2022/1907

of 6 October 2022

amending Decision 2014/145/CFSP concerning restrictive measures in respect of actions undermining or threatening the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on European Union, and in particular Article 29 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy,

Whereas:

(1)

On 17 March 2014, the Council adopted Decision 2014/145/CFSP (1).

(2)

The Union remains unwavering in its support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

(3)

On 21 September 2022, notwithstanding numerous calls by the international community on the Russian Federation to immediately stop its military aggression against Ukraine, the Russian Federation decided to further escalate its aggression against Ukraine by supporting the organisation of illegal ‘referenda’ in the parts of the Donetsk, Kherson, Luhansk and Zaporizhzhia regions that are currently occupied by the Russian Federation. The Russian Federation also further escalated its aggression against Ukraine by announcing a mobilisation in the Russian Federation and by again threatening to use weapons of mass destruction.

(4)

On 28 September 2022, the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy (the ‘High Representative’) issued a declaration on behalf of the Union condemning in the strongest possible terms the illegal sham ‘referenda’ conducted in parts of the Donetsk, Kherson, Luhansk and Zaporizhzhia regions of Ukraine currently and partially occupied by Russia. The High Representative also declared that the Union does not and will never recognise those illegal sham ‘referenda’ and their falsified outcome, nor any decision taken on the basis of this outcome, and urged all Members of the United Nations to do the same. By organising those illegal sham ‘referenda’, Russia aimed to change by force the internationally recognised borders of Ukraine, which constitutes a clear and serious breach of the Charter of the United Nations (the ‘UN Charter’). The High Representative also indicated that all those involved in organising those illegal sham ‘referenda’ as well as those responsible for other violations of international law in Ukraine will be held accountable and that additional restrictive measures against Russia will be brought forward in this regard. The High Representative recalled that the Union remains unwavering in its support for Ukraine’s independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognised borders, and demands that Russia immediately, completely and unconditionally withdraw all of its troops and military equipment from the entire territory of Ukraine. The High Representative further declared that the Union and its Member States will continue to support Ukraine’s efforts to this end, as long as necessary.

(5)

On 30 September 2022, the members of the European Council adopted a statement in which they firmly rejected and unequivocally condemned the illegal annexation by Russia of Ukraine’s Donetsk, Kherson, Luhansk and Zaporizhzhia regions. By wilfully undermining the rules-based international order and blatantly violating the fundamental rights of Ukraine to independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity, core principles as enshrined in the UN Charter and international law, Russia is putting global security at risk. The members of the European Council stated that they do not and will never recognise the illegal ‘referenda’ that Russia has engineered as a pretext for this further violation of Ukraine’s independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity, nor their falsified and illegal results. They declared that they will never recognise the illegal annexation, that those decisions are null and void and cannot produce any legal effect whatsoever and that Crimea, Donetsk, Kherson, Luhansk and Zaporizhzhia are Ukraine. They called on all States and international organisations to unequivocally reject the illegal annexation and recalled that Ukraine is exercising its legitimate right to defend itself against the Russian aggression to regain full control of its territory and has the right to liberate occupied territories within its internationally recognised borders. The members of the European Council stated that they will strengthen the Union’s restrictive measures countering Russia’s illegal actions and further increase pressure on Russia to end its war of aggression.

(6)

In view of the gravity of the situation, the Council considers that 30 persons and seven entities responsible for actions undermining or threatening the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine should be added to the list of persons, entities and bodies subject to restrictive measures set out in the Annex to Decision 2014/145/CFSP.

(7)

The Council considers that facilitating infringements of the prohibition against circumvention of certain Union restrictive measures is likely to contribute to destabilising Ukraine or undermining its territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence. Therefore, the Council deems it necessary to introduce a further listing criterion specifically targeting such facilitation.

(8)

It is also appropriate to introduce a derogation from the asset freeze and the prohibition to make funds and economic resources available with respect to two listed entities, as well as to include additional provisions on Member States’ obligations concerning the granting of derogations.

(9)

Further action by the Union is needed in order to implement certain measures.

(10)

Decision 2014/145/CFSP should therefore be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Aleksander Gelyevich DUGIN

(Александр Гельевич ДУГИН)

DOB: 7.1.1962

POB: Moscow, former USSR (now Russian Federation)

Nationality: Russian

Gender: male

Russian political philosopher, political scientist, analyst, strategist and long-standing ideologue of the theories of Russky Mir and Eurasianism. He is a member of the so-called Izborsk Club, a Russian Conservative think tank which specializes in studying Russia’s foreign and domestic policy.

Dugin has ideologically and theologically justified Crimea’s annexation and Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine, seeing it as a “liberation” of Ukraine from Western influence. Dugin’s ideology is centered on the idea of building a totalitarian, Russia-dominated Eurasian empire, which includes Ukraine for historical, religious and geographical reasons. Dugin’s ideological assumption is that Ukraine is an artificial state threatening the security of Russia and the envisioned Eurasian Empire. Therefore the military invasion of Ukraine was inevitable. He called on President Vladimir Putin to militarily invade eastern Ukraine.

Dugin has promoted the Russian World concept linked to the expansive, revanchist nationalism of the Putin era, entailing the idea of the historic motherland protecting the subjects of the Russian World. He has helped to revive the concept of “Novorossiya” or “New Russia” — a historical name, used during the era of the Russian Empire for an administrative area that is currently part of Ukraine.

Dugin called on the denazification of Ukraine and called its government fascist. He actively supported the pro-Russian separatist movement in Eastern Ukraine and instrumentalised his worldview theory by establishing the “Eurasian Youth Union”, which was undertaking activities directed at undermining the sovereignty of Ukraine.

Therefore Aleksander Dugin is responsible for, supporting and implementing actions or policies which undermine or threaten the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine, or stability or security in Ukraine.
