The Baker McKenzie International Commercial and Trade team is delighted to invite you to watch our pre-recorded webinar on the latest developments in relation to sanctions against Belarus, as at 10 December 2021. The webinar covers sanctions measures imposed against Belarus by the US, the EU, the UK, Canada and Switzerland, with a particular focus on the most recent measures announced in December 2021, in response to the migration crisis on the Belarus/EU border. The webinar lasts just over 30 minutes, and is intended to give you an overview of the developments, and the key takeaways to ensure compliance by your business. See below for more details.
The US, the EU, the UK, Canada and Switzerland have all now imposed significant and wide-ranging sanctions against the Lukashenko regime in Belarus. The sanctions measures target dealings with a number of high profile businesses and individuals, not only in Belarus, but also in Russia, and a number of the sanctions designations have had a material impact on business dealings in a broad array of sectors. Sectoral sanctions have also been introduced covering dealings related to the finance, energy, aviation, dual-use, potash and tobacco sectors. In response, Belarus has also announced a range of counter-measures.
