Correspondence and meetings concerning securing an exemption from EU sanctions against Russia

La respuesta a esta solicitud está muy retrasada. Servicio europeo de acción exterior ya debería haber respondido (detalles). Puedes apelar pidiendo una revisión interna.

Dear European External Action Service,

I suggest a strong public interest in information regarding sanctions against Russia being made public. Disclosure of the information requested would enhance public scrutiny.

Restrictive measures (sanctions) are an essential tool in the EU’s common foreign and security policy, through which the EU can intervene where necessary to prevent conflict or respond to emerging or current crises.

In reaction to Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine the European Union adopted sanctions against Russia.

According to Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted and approved by the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 217A on December 10th 1948, and the European Convention on Human Rights on November 10th 1950, everyone has the right to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority regardless of frontiers.

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

(1) List of countries and companies which asked for the securing an exemption from EU sanctions against Russia in the period between 24 February 2022 to date and copies of any correspondence (including letters, emails and their attachments, any information that you hold concerning the requests for such exemptions including, but not limited to, written communications and notes of meetings (handwritten or electronic, drafts, memos, invitations, appointments, cancellations, attendance lists, agendas, background papers), audio or video recordings, verbatim reports, operational conclusions, lines to take, briefings, and presentations or telephone conversations concerning the above.

Yours faithfully,

Volodymyr Bogatyr
