Sanctions at the EU borders

On September 8, the European Commission issued clarification on the import of cars and personal belongings by Russian citizens into the territory of the EU.
According to the text, Russians were not allowed to import more than 150 types of goods into the EU, including cars, mobile phones, laptops, cosmetics, toothpaste, shampoos, soap, women's clothing, and shoes.

Junior lawyer UPPERCASE LEGAL Tamrin Darbakov commented to the TV channel RBC-TV on how these sanctions relate to European legislation.
"The European Union did not obligate all member states to adhere to these sanctions and allowed them to interpret the law at their discretion. Shortly afterwards, the European Commission issued new recommendations, urging national authorities of EU countries to assess each case separately, as well as recommending customs authorities to focus their attention on imported cars. To resist the seizure of property when crossing the EU border, Russian citizens can turn to the national court of an EU member state and, for example, demand interim measures in the form of an interim decision on a confiscation case," explains Tamrin.
