Having regard to the Treaty of the European Union, and in particular Articles 28(1) and 31(1) thereof,

(3)

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) requested an extension of the implementation period of Decision (CFSP) 2019/2009 by thirteen months, until 23 January 2024, considering the delay in the implementation of project activities under Decision (CFSP) 2019/2009 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and Russia’s unprovoked and unjustified war of aggression against Ukraine.

(4)

The continuation of the activities referred to in Article 1 of Decision (CFSP) 2019/2009 until 23 January 2024 can be performed without any consequences as regards financial resources.

(5)

The request for extension should be accepted by amending Article 5(2) of Decision (CFSP) 2019/2009 accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1
