Early on the morning of 24 February 2022, the Russian military invaded Ukraine. The full scope of the Russian military operation continues to remain unclear. While a second round of ceasefire talks is anticipated to take place on Thursday 3 March 2022, a broad military offensive remains underway, and the UN has said that to date over 1 million people have fled Ukraine in response to the conflict.
The invasion has triggered a large number of financial sanctions and trade restrictions on Russia from the UK, EU and US, in addition to a number of companies announcing that they have (or intend to) disinvest from Russia. Please see our previous articles available here and here for details of these restrictions (and further background in connection with the conflict).
