Episode 190 — Catching Up on Russia and Burma Sanctions Programs
Last week, the Biden Administration announced new and significant trade sanctions against Russia. The action was long expected given the Biden Administration’s criticism of Russia, and was a comprehensive response to Russia’s interference in the 2020 US election, its SolarWinds cyberattack and its ongoing occupation of Crimea and threatening addition of troops along the Ukraine border.
Over the last few months, OFAC has ratcheted up sanctions against Burma in response to the military coup and continuing crackdown against protesters.
In this Episode, Michael Volkov provides an overview on the Russia and Burma sanctions programs.
