On 29 July 2023, following several earlier initiatives, Ukraine finally approved legislation implementing a unified list of all effective personal sanctions – the State Sanctions Register.

The State Sanctions Register will offer the public free access to consolidated, accurate and up-to-date information concerning all individuals and legal entities subject to Ukrainian sanctions (including the grounds for their sanctioning and the types of sanctions introduced). All information in the State Sanctions Register will be available in both the Ukrainian and English languages.

It is anticipated that the State Sanctions Register will be operational early next year.
