On April 15, 2021, by Executive Order 14024, I declared a national emergency under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 USC 1701-1706) to address the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States, the formed by certain harmful foreign activities of the Government of the Russian Federation. On March 8, 2022, I issued Executive Order 14066 to extend the scope of the national emergency declared in Executive Order 14024. On August 20, 2021, March 11, 2022, and April 6, 2022, I issued Executive Orders 14039, 14068, and 14071, respectively, to take additional steps related to the national emergency declared in Executive Order 14024.
Certain harmful foreign activities by the government of the Russian Federation – specifically, efforts to undermine the conduct of free and fair democratic elections and democratic institutions in the United States and its allies and partners; engage in and facilitate malicious cyber-enabled activities against the United States and its allies and partners; encourage and use transnational corruption to influence foreign governments; to track extraterritorial activities targeting dissidents or journalists; undermine security in countries and regions important to the national security of the United States; and violations of well-established principles of international law, including respect for the territorial integrity of States – continue to pose an unusual and exceptional threat to United States national security, foreign policy and economy. For this reason, the national emergency declared in Executive Order 14024, the scope of which was expanded by Executive Order 14066 and in respect of which additional steps were taken in Executive Orders 14039, 14068 and 14071, must expire on 15th 2022.
Therefore, pursuant to Section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 USC 1622(d)), I am continuing the national emergency declared in Executive Order 14024 for one year.
This notice will be published in the federal register and submitted to Congress.
