The Ukraine invasion - a global perspective

General Policy

On Wednesday morning, Russian troops entered Ukraine. As stressed by policymakers in London, Washington, and Brussels, everything is now on the table in terms of further sanctions against Russia. Whatever new measures might ensue-and depending on Russia’s counter-response-the immediate costs and possible risks for investors and corporates in the region have never been higher.

In this special episode, a panel of Global Counsel experts give an international perspective on the unfolding events in Ukraine. We cover the anticipated timeline of the invasion, the current and future Western sanctions along with possible Russian countermeasures, and provide insights from the Middle East. Finally, we zoom out to look at the conflict's long-term implications for Russia and the wider region’s business environment.
