Russia-Ukraine Sanctions: What You Need to Know
In a two hour live webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the significant and latest issues regarding the sanctions imposed by the U.S. government against Russia and Ukraine for the former’s actions deemed as a violation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.
Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
- The broad scope and complexity of the sanctions, with a focus on their impact on the business community
- A look at the major Russian companies and banks that are sanctioned
- An in depth discussion of the sectoral sanctions against the Russian energy, financial and defense sectors
- A comparison of US and EU sanctions
- Predictions of what lies ahead

- The sanctions are complex, constantly changing and affect most multinational corporations because most have some business activity with Russia.
- The sanctions target three sectors: Russian energy, financial services and defense.
- In addition to these sectorial sanctions, there are new companies and individuals added to the list of sanctioned parties practically every week.
- The sanctions are multilateral. Trade compliance programs need to also take into account the sanctions imposed by other countries, which are similar but not identical to the U.S. sanctions.
- Guidance on applications of the provisions is limited. Government authorities are taking an expansive view of the applicability of the sanctions to various business transactions.
