International sanctions (also known as 'restrictive measures') are a foreign policy tool, which aim to preserve or restore peace, prevent conflicts, strengthen international security, strengthen and support democracy, the rule of law, human rights, and fight against terrorism.
Estonia considers international sanctions, adopted by international organisations such as the European Union and the United Nations Security Council, legally binding and consequently fully implements and enforces them.
Detailed information about the EU and UN restrictive measures in force can be found at the EU Sanctions Map.
More information on the different types of restrictive measures, including arms embargoes, asset freezes, restrictions on admission, and economic sanctions, can be found here.
