UK Sanctions against Russia – what impact will they have?

Mathieu Boulegue, Research Fellow – Russia and Eurasia Programme at Chatham House, The Royal Institute of International Affairs

09:45 - 10:15
  • The Skripal case forced HMG to come up with a robust response against Russia’s active measures against the UK. This needs to be outlined and clearly explained.
  • The UK response, however, needs to be put into perspective in terms of scope and results. Indeed, Russia is using UK and international sanctions as an ambivalent tool to promote its internal agenda and great power rhetoric.
  • The UK government is facing an uncertain environment as the cost of deterring Russia through sanctions requires inflicting self-damage but also ensuring continued unity amongst partners and allies.
  • Deterring Russia and therefore responding robustly to the ‘Russia challenge’ could be done through bolder selective action. This in turn increases the risk of miscalculation and the potential for unintended policy errors.
