                 Executive Order 14066 of March 8, 2022
                Prohibiting Certain Imports and New Investments
                 With Respect to Continued Russian Federation Efforts To
                 Undermine the Sovereignty and Territorial Integrity of
                 By the authority vested in me as President by the
                 Constitution and the laws of the United States of
                 America, including the International Emergency Economic
                 Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) (IEEPA), the
                 National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.), and
                 section 301 of title 3, United States Code,
                 I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States
                 of America, hereby expand the scope of the national
                 emergency declared in Executive Order 14024 of April
                 15, 2021, and relied on for additional steps taken in
                 Executive Order 14039 of August 20, 2021, finding that
                 the Russian Federation's unjustified, unprovoked,
                 unyielding, and unconscionable war against Ukraine,
                 including its recent further invasion in violation of
                 international law, including the United Nations
                 Charter, 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. Accordingly, I hereby order:

                 notwithstanding any contract entered into or license or

                 and related organizations) by employees, grantees, or
                 contractors thereof.
