How useful have the EU’s financial sanctions on Russia been?

A reflection on the impact of sanctions against Russia, one year since the outbreak of the war in Ukraine.

Publishing date
23 February 2023

When the sanctions against Russia were first implemented, Giuseppe Porcaro invited Nicolas Véron and Elina Ribakova on The Sound of Economics to discuss the possible implications of those sanctions.

On 24 February, it will be one year since the invasion of Ukraine. As this anniversary approaches, they revisit this topic to reflect on how effective the sanctions have been, its implication on the international financial and banking system and how Russia has responded to the sanctions.
