INTEGRITES Partner and Head of Cross-Border Litigation Dmytro Marchukov spoke at the webinar «Sanctions, Liability and Managing Risk». It was held on June 16, 2022, as a part of the Dublin International Disputes Week 2022.
The panel of speakers also included Audrey Byrne (Ireland), Simon Osborn-King (UK) and Nicholas P Silverman (U.S.). The panellists discussed the current framework for sanctions in each of their respective jurisdictions, the approach to enforcement and what issues need to be considered by GCs and outside counsel when working across the borders.
Dmytro Marchukov has covered the subject matter from the Ukrainian perspective. In particular, he has addressed the following:
Dmytro Marchukov: «Sanctions are the response of many countries to the russians’ shameful aggression against Ukraine since 2014. It is also an instrument of economic pressure on the aggressor and its resource base, as well as simply the moral choice for the civilised world to cut ties (to the extent possible) with the “empire” whose priorities are decades – if not centuries – behind those of the modern developed countries. The idea of our webinar was to consider the sanctions from the perspectives of the core jurisdictions involved in trying to stop the russians' war crimes in Ukraine».
