Global Sanctions and Russia: Lessons for International Business

Sanctions against Russia and their effectiveness have been a hot topic at policy forums since the full-scale invasion of Ukraine. But these discussions, which are mainly focused on geopolitics and macroeconomics, often overlook the impact sanctions are having on international business.

In a lecture at the University of Cambridge, Nabi Abdullaev, a partner for Russia & Former Soviet Union at Control Risks, examines the issue from multiple sides and asks what keeps CEOs awake at night.

Abdullaev served as editor-in-chief of The Moscow Times between 2014 and 2015.

This lecture at the University of Cambridge is part of a series of talks by media professionals and experts on Russia organized by The Moscow Times at leading universities and research centers around the world.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
