Stronger Together: Tackling Russia Sanctions Evasion

As the Russia-Ukraine conflict continues, we in the compliance community are proud to do our part to implement sanctions and facilitate a key prong in our countries’ responses.

Compliance departments should not expect Russia-related sanctions to be lifted anytime soon. Russia’s rhetoric has also escalated and now seeks to frame the war as an existential conflict with the West, which is hardly the environment in which we would see sanctions lifted.
