Despite the sanctions and political statements, every day EU countries transfer hundreds of millions of euros paying for Russian fossil fuels.

Europeans pay, Putin's regime has money to buy new tanks and missiles, and more and more CO2 is emitted into the atmosphere.

Here you can impose your personal sanctions to stop fueling Putin’s war machine. And save your money. And your health. And our Planet.

The war in Ukraine is claiming more and more victims. Many countries and the EU have already imposed numerous sanctions on Putin's regime. Yet we continue to import fossil fuels from Russia: oil, gas and coal, paying Russian companies hundreds of millions of dollars a day. It is not surprising though, as we are not ready for alternative sources of energy now. But the process of change must begin.

We decided not to stand idly by and to use our competences - strategic, communication, advertising - to create a system to trigger individual sanctions.

Today we have a chance not only to stop the war in Ukraine, but also to save our future - reducing emissions and global warming associated with fossil fuel consumption.

All the personal sanctions we propose are based on analyses by Eurostat, the International Energy Agency and leading Polish experts in energy and climate policy.

Main partner of MySanctions campaign is International Advertising Association, Poland.

We invite you to join a community that can make a real impact on war and global warming.
