The Council has prolonged the application of EU restrictive measures targeting action against Ukraine's sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence. 
The asset freeze and travel bans against 150 persons and 37 entities have been extended for a further 6 months, that is until 15 September 2015.
This decision gives legal effect to a political decision taken at the Foreign Affairs Council on 29 January 2015.
The legal acts are available in the EU Official Journal of 14 March 2015.
