                Notice of March 2, 2022

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to Ukraine

                On March 6, 2014, by Executive Order 13660, the 
                President 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, the President 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, the President 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, the President issued Executive 
                Order 13685, to take additional steps to address the 
                Russian occupation of the Crimea region of Ukraine.

                On September 20, 2018, the President issued Executive 
                Order 13849, to take additional steps to implement 
                certain statutory sanctions with respect to the Russian 
                Federation.

                On February 21, 2022, the President issued Executive 
                Order 14065, which further expanded the scope of the 
                national emergency declared in Executive Order 13660, 
                as expanded in scope in Executive Orders 13661 and 
                13662, and relied on for additional steps taken in 
                Executive Orders 13685 and 13849, and found that the 
                Russian Federation's purported recognition of the so-
                called Donetsk People's Republic or Luhansk People's 
                Republic regions of Ukraine contradicts Russia's 
                commitments under the Minsk agreements and further 
                threatens the peace, stability, sovereignty, and 
                territorial integrity of Ukraine, and thereby 
                constitutes an unusual and extraordinary threat to the 
                national security and foreign policy of the United 
                States.

                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 in Executive Order 13660, which was 
                expanded in scope in Executive Order 13661, Executive 
                Order 13662, and Executive Order 14065, and under which 
                additional steps were taken in Executive Order 13685 
                and Executive Order 13849, must continue in effect 
                beyond March 6, 2022. 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.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.
