How can sanctions against Russia be made more effective?
Sanctions against Russia are increasing. The EU has recently decided on a 6th package of sanctions, and this time the package also includes seaborne crude oil and petroleum products in addition to broadcasting sanctions and new bans on banks. While significant, the EU stopped short of a full ban on important of petroleum products and notably did not include the import of natural gas. As the EU now should start drawing up a new package of sanctions, what has been the effects of the sanctions so far? How could more hydrocarbons be included in the sanctions? What can EU countries do to move faster in their transition away from Russian gas and oil? Please join us for a webinar!
