Sanctions Against Russia: Successes, Failures, and Future Prospects

Feb. 11, 2020, 10:00-11:15am (RSVP requested)
6th Floor Flom Auditorium, Wilson Center, 1300 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, DC

Join the Wilson Center's Kennan Institute for a talk on international sanctions and their effects on Russia. Since Russia’s annexation of Crimea and the beginning of the war in Donbas in 2014, international sanctions have been a key instrument in exerting pressure on the Russian government to end the conflict. However, the current sanctions regime is plagued by a number of flaws and is in need of improvement. Vasyl Filipchuk and Anastacia Galouchka will analyze current sanctions, future prospects and how the application of sanctions against Russia can be improved going forward in the context of their new report. The Latvian Ambassador to Ukraine H.E. Juris Poikans will provide opening remarks.

RSVP is requested; information can be found at this link.
