Announcing the news, the Commission explained that this tool will allow the citizens of the EU to see who is subject to a travel ban under the sanction measures and therefore prohibited from travelling to the EU, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

According to the Commission, the Sanctions Tool is available to the authorities of each Member State as well as to EU citizens. It has been revealed that the aim of the Sanctions Tool is to provide easily accessible data and information about the restrictive measures that have been adopted by the EU until now.

The EU Sanctions Map tool shows that restrictive measures currently apply to individuals and entities of Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, China, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Guinea, Mali, Tunisia, Libya, South Sudan, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Zimbabwe, Somalia, Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, and Myanmar.

The countries against which the most thematic restrictions currently apply are Belarus, North Korea, Russia, and Syria.

The Commission highlighted that the information on the EU Sanctions Map is updated regularly after any amendments to existing sanctions regimes.

Commenting on the publication of the consolidated list of travel bans, the High Representative responsible for Common Foreign and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, said that the travel bans are an essential component of the EU’s foreign policy toolbox and a key feature of most sanctions regimes.

“Since 2014, the Council has imposed travel bans against 1,091 individuals in response to their actions violating Ukraine’s sovereignty. Since the start of the illegal Russian aggression in Ukraine this year, approximately 900 travel bans restricting entry into the territory of the EU have been imposed against individuals who support and facilitate that aggression,” Borrell added.

Commissioner Mairead McGuinness, responsible for sanctions implementation, financial services, financial stability and Capital Markets Union, also commented on the list. She said that it is very important that there is transparency.

“This includes those who are implicated, in one way or another, in Russia’s unjustified aggression against the people of Ukraine. We have now updated our publicly accessible tool, which helps facilitate the implementation of our sanctions. Our Sanctions Map is one more way of shedding light on those responsible,” the statement of McGuinness reads.

The EU authorities impose travel bans and other restrictive measures on individuals and entities to prevent conflict or respond to emerging or current crises. Currently, the EU has over 40 different sanctions regimes in place.

Kenya, Zimbabwe excluded from Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers – Sportstar

Kenya and Zimbabwe have been booted out of qualifiers for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations finals after failing to have their FIFA suspensions set aside by this week’s deadline, the continent’s governing body said.

The football associations of both countries have been suspended for “political interference” and were only included in the draw for the qualifiers on the proviso they would be cleared by FIFA to compete.

“The two associations; Football Kenya Federation and the Zimbabwe Football Association will be considered losers and eliminated from the competition,” the Confederation of African Football (CAF) said in a statement on Tuesday.

“Groups C and K will be composed only of three teams and the order of the matches will be maintained in accordance with the match schedule.”

The top two sides in each pool advance to the finals in Ivory Coast next June and July.

Kenya had been included in Group C along with Cameroon, Namibia and Burundi. It had been scheduled to travel to Yaounde on June 4 for its pool opener.

Zimbabwe was  in Group K with Morocco, South Africa and Liberia.

Morocco, who has also qualified for the World Cup, was scheduled to play back-to-back games against Zimbabwe in September and will now be able to set up friendlies against tougher opponents to boost its preparations for Qatar.

Both Kenya and Zimbabwe’s associations were dissolved by their respective governments last year and subsequently suspended by FIFA in February.

Kenya’s sports ministry disbanded its football federation as president Nick Mwendwa was charged with multiple counts of fraud, while the executive committee of Zimbabwe’s association was dissolved amid allegations of the misappropriation of funds.
