This post is a follow-up to our recent post "Ukraine in Crisis: What do the UK sanctions against Russia and Russian entities mean for your business? - A practical guide" on UK sanctions against Russia.
In light of Russia’s recent invasion of Ukraine, the international community has responded in new ways through packages of sanctions against the Russian state, Russian banks and named individuals. Amongst other things, UK measures cover a number of trade-related sanctions, namely in respect of energy-related goods or services, infrastructure-related goods, military goods and technical assistance, dual-use goods and technology transfers. Provision of financial sanctions or funds (as defined in the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act 2018) for such goods, services and technology is also prohibited.
