Restrictive measures – Russia's military attack on Ukraine

Part of the wider package of European Union responses to Russia’s military attack on Ukraine

The European Union adopted a comprehensive set of restrictive measures in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.  Those measures relate also to the aviation sector and contain in particular a comprehensive ban on the export of goods and technology suited for use in aviation and the prohibition of provision of technical assistance and other related services in relation to aviation goods and technology to persons, entities or bodies in Russia or for use in Russia. The measures adopted by the EU also ban Russia’s air carriers and aircraft from flying into, over or out of the territory of the EU.

This dedicated area on the EASA website provides information for the aviation community about the impacts of those restrictive measures on the activities regulated under the aviation safety rules falling under Regulation (EU) 2018/1139. It also provides information about the actions taken by EASA in implementation of the restrictive measures and provides answers to some of the frequently asked questions. The information contained on this website is of a technical nature and complements the information already available on the websites of European Institutions.
