On 6 March 2015, in light of the situation in Ukraine, Switzerland’s Federal Council decided to extend its measures so that Swiss territory is not misused to circumvent international sanctions. As outlined in a statement by the Federal Council, all foreign investment is prohibited in Crimea and Sevastopol, with service bans to apply in the investment and tourism branches, as well as in some other economic sectors. Furthermore, 28 individuals have been added to the list of individuals and entities with which financial intermediaries can no longer enter into new business relationships.
