Spacecraft_ObitCouncil Decision (“CFSP”) 2015/1764 amends the EU Russia sanctions to exclude certain operations relating to use of launchers operated by European launch service providers, or for the use of launches of European space programs, or for the fueling of satellites by European satellites manufacturers.

The amended restrictive measures against Russia allow the European space industry to conduct exports and other transactions involving rocket fuels and to provide launch services and related technical assistance that are otherwise prohibited under the regulations.
