  • Venue: American Center, Prague 
  • About: After more than two years of Russian full-scale invasion of Ukraine and the unprecedented sanction regime imposed by the EU, US, UK and various other states, Russia remains able to circumvent and mitigate the effects of the regime. With two years of data and experience, there are key questions to be answered, starting with the strategic goal of sanctions. Is it to punish Russia and sanctioned Russian individuals and entities, coerce Russia and to what end, limit Russian capacity to wage war, help Ukraine to defend itself? What should be the priorities, in what timeframe and with what policies and capacities? What have we learned about the adaptation cycle of Russia, what are the key loopholes to close? Is the EU's model of sanction enforcement and monitoring (realized mostly on national level) still viable,  can we use the proceedings from frozen assets or even the assets themselves?
