On 1 February 2024, the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine launched an automated sanctions registry which includes all Ukrainian sanctions into a unified platform. This development makes it much easier to check the applicability of Ukrainian sanctions. Previously, conducting searches for Ukrainian sanctions against individuals or legal entities was undertaken by individually checking the subjects of interest against the many separate legal acts which imposed relevant sanctions.
The automated Ukrainian sanctions registry is accessible in English and Ukrainian at the following link: https://drs.nsdc.gov.ua/. It should be noted that although the searches are available in English, they may appear to be imprecise. Therefore, to improve accuracy, it is recommended that multiple variations of transliteration along with searches in Ukrainian be used and, if possible, apply numeric identification details.
For more information with respect to the legal regime and application of Ukrainian sanctions, please contact our specialists Olexiy Soshenko, Managing Partner; Albert Sych, Partner, Head of Corporate; and / or Olesia Mykhailenko, Counsel.
