In particular, the court concluded that the EU Council had made a mistake in its assessment, believing that it should not take into account the evidence and arguments provided by Klyuyev.
Therefore, it is reported that the General Court cancels the acts of March 2017 in the part relating to Klyuyev.
The court also said that the claims for the repeal of acts of October 2015 and 2016 were rejected.
