Sanctions on Russia

The widespread imposition of sanctions on Russia following its invasion of Ukraine will not only trigger a major recession in the country, but also force a reckoning regarding its political economy. President Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin’s own policy responses – including the shuttering of the stock market, state takeover of the local government bond market and major capital controls – indicate that Russia is set to transition to a non-market command economy.

This AKE Special Report seeks to outline how the sanctions will prompt such a major GDP decrease. It also examines how the sanctions will affect key markets and sectors of the global economy in the medium-to-long term as well as how they may alter Russia’s new political economy.
