Aotearoa New Zealand condemns, unequivocally, the unprovoked and unjustified attack by Russia on Ukraine. The actions of President Putin are a grave breach of international rules; the use of force to change borders is strictly prohibited under international law, as is targeting of civilians.

We join the international community in applying tougher sanctions to severely limit the Putin regime’s ability to continue its war in Ukraine.

If you work in an area likely to be impacted by sanctions, for example: exporting or importing, financial transactions, or providing professional services, please sign up to receive Russia sanctions updates. You will also be notified when the sanctions register is updated with new sanctioned individuals or entities, and if there are new or updated trade measures. These emails are sent by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT), who have a coordination role for the Russia sanctions system.
