Russian sanctions — navigating choppy waters

This white paper by Admiral Chris Parry, examines the strategic and financial implications of Russia’s actions in relation to Ukraine, especially as a result of the shooting down of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17. It particularly addresses the likely effects of sanctions, imposed by the US, the EU and other Western-oriented countries and the retaliatory measures that have been introduced by Russia.

The white paper considers the prospects for future confrontation and conflict in Eastern Ukraine and more widely, as well as the implications of sanctions and unfolding events for the financial and corporate sector. In addition, it provides guidance about what actions are needed to ensure compliance and identifies the broader, systemic risks that are likely to occur as a result of continuing tension and crisis.
