The Brussels Office of the Polish Institute of International Affairs (PISM) and RUSI Europe are delighted to invite you to a closed-door seminar on the challenges related to the implementation of EU sanctions against Russia. To date, thirteen packages have been approved, targeting 1 706 individuals and 419 entities, and covering a wide range of key sectors, goods and services. The negotiations are underway on the 14th package of sanctions with a strong anti-circumvention angle, for example in the maritime sector. The effectiveness of restrictive measures depends among others on the EU’s ability to enforce them and limit their circumvention.
