Russia Sanctions: How Far Will They Go?
MARCH 10, 2022
- The Russian invasion of Ukraine has pushed the EU, US, UK, and other countries to impose new, far-reaching sanctions measures targeting the Russian Government, the Central Bank, state-owned entities, Russian oligarchs, and the Russian financial and banking system.
- This has led institutional investors such as government pension funds in Europe and state pension funds in the US to divest their Russia exposures.
- While they have negatively impacted the Russian economy, the sanctions measures’ long-term effects remain to be seen. The imposition of additional sanctions measures could destabilize international energy and financial markets.
