Before Russia started their invasion of the Ukraine, the US government was watching and planning its counter move. FIN-2022-Alert-001 called on all of us within the US Financial System to be “vigilant against efforts to evade the expansive sanctions and other U.S.-imposed restrictions implemented in connection with the Russian Federation’s further invasion of Ukraine”. But, what does that mean? Join us as we get a peek behind the words. Brian O’Tool, Senior Financial Crimes Director, Sanctions and Screening for Truist and former Senior Advisor to the Director, Office of Foreign Assets Control along with Will Voorhees, Senior Financial Crimes Director, FIU will walk us through a better understanding of this important directive and our call to action as members of the Financial Community.
