On 11 April 2014, the governments of Albania, Iceland, Montenegro, Norway and Ukraine committed to align their national policies with the EU asset freeze and travel ban, which are imposed on certain individuals associated with Crimean efforts to unilaterally declare independence from Ukraine.

The relevant EU restrictive measures were implemented by way of two Council Decisions of 17 and 21 March 2014: Council Decision 2014/145/CFSP and Council Implementing Decision 2014/151/CFSP, respectively.
