The Council of the European Union decided on 1 July 2016 to extend the economic sanctions targeting specific sectors of the Russian economy until 31 January 2017.

These measures were first introduced in July 2014 in response to Russia's destabilising actions in Ukraine and reinforced in September 2014. In March 2015, the Council decided to link the duration of these sanctions to the complete implementation of the Minsk agreements. Since then, the sanctions were further renewed in December 2015.

The economic sanctions renewed on this occasion are separate from another set of sanctions connected to Russia's annexation of Crimea.
