Benjamin Wegg-Prosser and Rebecca Park are joined by Chris Weafer, a Moscow-based investment strategist and founding partner of Macro-Advisory, to talk through the sanctions’ impact on corporates and investors and the specific challenges they face in Russia and the wider region.

They discuss the sanctions’ short-term, medium-term and long-term impact on the international economy, how businesses are pivoting away from Russia, the effect of Russia’s countermeasures so far and what is still to come.
