                Notice of March 2, 2016

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to Ukraine

                On March 6, 2014, by Executive Order 13660, I declared 
                a national emergency pursuant to the International 
                Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706) to 
                deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the 
                national security and foreign policy of the United 
                States constituted by the actions and policies of 
                persons that undermine democratic processes and 
                institutions in Ukraine; threaten its peace, security, 
                stability, sovereignty, and territorial integrity; and 
                contribute to the misappropriation of its assets.

                On March 16, 2014, I issued Executive Order 13661, 
                which expanded the scope of the national emergency 
                declared in Executive Order 13660, and found that the 
                actions and policies of the Government of the Russian 
                Federation with respect to Ukraine undermine democratic 
                processes and institutions in Ukraine; threaten its 
                peace, security, stability, sovereignty, and 
                territorial integrity; and contribute to the 
                misappropriation of its assets.

                On March 20, 2014, I issued Executive Order 13662, 
                which further expanded the scope of the national 
                emergency declared in Executive Order 13660, as 
                expanded in scope in Executive Order 13661, and found 
                that the actions and policies of the Government of the 
                Russian Federation, including its purported annexation 
                of Crimea and its use of force in Ukraine, continue to 
                undermine democratic processes and institutions in 
                Ukraine; threaten its peace, security, stability, 
                sovereignty, and territorial integrity; and contribute 
                to the misappropriation of its assets.

                On December 19, 2014, I issued Executive Order 13685, 
                to take additional steps to address the Russian 
                occupation of the Crimea region of Ukraine.

                The actions and policies addressed in these Executive 
                Orders continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary 
                threat to the national security and foreign policy of 
                the United States. For this reason, the national 
                emergency declared on March 6, 2014, and the measures 
                adopted on that date, on March 16, 2014, on March 20, 
                2014, and December 19, 2014, to deal with that 
                emergency, must continue in effect beyond March 6, 
                2016. Therefore, in accordance with section 202(d) of 
                the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am 
                continuing for 1 year the national emergency declared 
                in Executive Order 13660.
