The Ukraine Crisis
With the full-scale attack on Ukraine launched by Russia in the early hours of 24 February, much concern and uncertainty has been felt across the globe. The British Chambers of Commerce team is assessing the business impact and has written to the UK government today to call for an announcement on the support that will be available to business, as the potential long-term consequences of Russia’s actions may be significant.
EU sanctions came into force late last night, including import bans from Donets and Luhansk, and export bans on selected goods and services to those territories. These will apply to EU commercial entities. Members who are concerned that business may be affected are encouraged to reach out to the International Trade Team via firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01223 237414.
