Russia’s sanctions and their effectiveness have been a popular topic at policy forums in the over two years since the start of the war in Ukraine.

But these discussions, which are mainly concentrated on geopolitics and the macroeconomy, often miss the effects the sanctions have had on international business.

How have global companies built their strategies in an environment dominated by long-term geostrategic power plays and shorter-term domestic political interests? What keeps CEOs awake at night - and what should be keeping them awake?

This event is part of the TMT Lecture Series. This series ­– a collaboration between The Moscow Times (Russia’s oldest independent media outlet) and top global universities – provides a platform for experts and professionals to inform a range of audiences about what is going on inside Russia following the full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Alexander Gubsky, publisher of The Moscow Times , will provide more details about the series at the start of the event.
