Russia´s invasion in Ukraine prompted both the EU and the US to impose a variety of sanctions on the Russian Federation in order to contain (and possibly even reverse) its unlawful military expeditions. From day one this decision has been disputed: business organizations, politicians, think-tankers and journalists debated heavily on the sanctions´ scope of effectiveness. The report "Sanctions against Russia: Current status, prospects, successes and gaps in the Multilateral International Sanctions Regime against the Russian Federation" presented by Anastacia Galouchka and Mykola Kapitonenko from the ICPS in Kyiv takes stock of the existing sanctions-regime in the EU and the US, scrutinizes the effect of sanctions and provides suggestions on how to close certain loopholes in the existing regulation. How will the discussion on sanctions evolve within the EU? How to ensure compliance with sanctions and retain credibility? Can transatlantic unity and coordination be maintained despite tensions with the Trump administration?
