Since Russia’s February 2022 invasion of Ukraine, the United States, along with more than 40 other countries, has put in place the largest sanctions and export control regime in history. Russia is highly motivated to evade those controls, particularly to procure and pay for microelectronics and other components for advanced missiles and other weapons systems. In this Special Edition Monthly Sanctions Update, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Global Affairs for U.S. Treasury’s Office of Terrorist Financing and Financial Crimes Anna Morris and Acting Director for the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network Him Das will discuss the Treasury Department’s counter-evasion priorities. The session will offer participants the opportunity to ask questions and share insights about the trends and typologies of Russia sanctions evasion, 314(b) information sharing and identifying suspicious activity, and learn more about what the Treasury Department is doing to combat these illicit trade and financial flows.
