Compliance is very sensitive to changes in politics and society,
so Russia's military invasion of Ukraine inevitably led to a change in focus and implementation of new verification rules for businesses worldwide.
Protection from any connection with the aggressor country is currently the primary task of companies and entrepreneurs, in the UK, in particular.
New risks have caused new requirements, and one by one European countries impose additional sanctions and restrictions. In particular, the UK has obliged all legal entities to provide data on ultimate beneficial owners to a new registry within six months to avoid hiding assets, and the Netherlands has set a 25% limit on the participation of Russians in business with a ban on cooperation.
