Abstract

The crime of aggression committed against Ukraine by the Russian Federation, assisted by Belarus, in February 2022, has highlighted some of the limitations of the current model of sanctions. International law allows a wider scope for sanctions than has been put in place to date by the EU and others, particularly against state actors. A number of areas in which the scope of sanctions could be widened are identified.

Keywords: Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, sanctions, countermeasures
