The Real Impact of Crimean Sanctions. 2nd Edition
The 2nd edition of the Real Impact of Crimean Sanctions is based on the monitoring results of the joint monitoring group of the Black Sea Institute of Strategic Studies and BlackSeaNews.
The occupation and subsequent illegal annexation of the Crimean peninsula by the Russian Federation in February-March 2014 and Russia's further aggression against Ukraine have become a turning point in the global history of sanctions.
Certainly, the use of various restrictive measures in an attempt to coerce a particular state to change its policies is a centuries-old practice. But the problem that we all have been facing since 2014 raises the stakes considerably. It challenges us to answer whether in the 3rd millenium, the civilized world is capable of changing the aggressive policy of a nuclear power, a founder and permanent member of the UN Security Council, without the application of military force.
The authors hope that the results of our work that has spanned the 6 years of the Crimean occupation and remains ongoing will make a valid contribution to the understanding of the subject.
