Global business and compliance risks are changing rapidly and are no longer what they were before February 24, 2022. Russia has invaded Ukraine, and the consequences of the invasion are felt by the whole world.
European business is no exception, as Russian "roots" over the past century have firmly penetrated the economy of Western and Eastern Europe.
Avoiding cooperation with the sanctioned entities has acquired a new meaning. For the first time in human history, the world has faced a significant number of sanctions, still against one of the most powerful players in the world economy.
The greatest threat lies not in direct cooperation with sanctioned entities, which are easy enough to trace, but in the fact that the number of sanctions is growing daily.
It is important to see early possible traces of involvement with sanctioned companies, politically exposed persons and those who support aggression – they are first on sanctions lists, so cooperation with them is a time bomb for your business.
