Episode 57 — A Review of the Russia Sanctions and Recent Changes
Since 2014, the United States has put into place a comprehensive set of sanctions against Russia. In response to Russia’s annexation of Crimea and its hostile activities in the Ukraine, President Obama put in place a set of sanctions focused against various sectors of the Russian economy. Since the Trump Administration came to power, Congress enacted additional sanctions, and the Department of Treasury adopted targeted sanctions against Russian Oligarchs. Recently, the State Department announced new sanctions against Russia for its violation of international laws relating to chemical and biological weapons.
In this episode, Michael Volkov discusses the Russia Sanctions Program and the difficult compliance issues surrounding compliance.
