Summary

On 23 June 2022, the Russia (Sanctions) (EU Exit) (Amendment) (No. 10) Regulations 2022 amended the Russia Sanctions Regulations. This amendment extends the existing import sanctions measures. It prohibits the import of certain revenue generating goods as well as the acquisition, supply and delivery, directly or indirectly, of revenue generating goods. It also prohibits the provision of technical assistance, financial services and funds and brokering services relating to the revenue generating goods. The full list of revenue generating goods can be found in Schedule 3D of the Russia Sanctions Regulations.

Case studies

The Stonebridge Hillside Hub is a key scheme in the continuing regeneration of the Stonebridge Estate in West London.
