On 24 June 2022, the Council of the European Union adopted the Implementing Regulation 2022/994, officially banning, as of 25 June 2022, Rossiya RTR/RTR Planeta, Rossiya 24/Russia 24, and TV Centre International, as provided by Article 2f of Regulation (EU) 833/2014 “concerning restrictive measures in view of Russia's actions destabilising the situation in Ukraine”.  

This Implementing Regulation 2022/994 follows the adoption of the Council Regulation (EU) 2022/879 of 3 June 2022 (see IRIS 2022-7/7 in this issue), adding the three media outlets in the Annex XV of Regulation (EU) 833/2014. 

They can no longer broadcast content to the European Union nor execute broadcasting licence or authorisation, transmission and distribution arrangements they may have had within the territory of the European Union. 

The 2022/994 Implementing Regulation did not need the approval of other EU institutions and entered into force on 25 June 2022.
