Ukraine-Russia Crisis: Trade Sanctions & Export Controls

Russian President Vladimir Putin's recognition of Eastern Ukraine's Donetsk People's Republic and Luhansk People's Republic regions as "independent states" and the subsequent further military invasion of Ukraine has prompted a swath of trade sanctions and export controls by the United States aimed to isolate Russia from the global financial system, global trade, and cutting-edge technology. These restrictions affect how US companies and companies worldwide that rely on US technology and trade in US products engage in transactions and activities with Russian businesses; such activity may be prohibited under new sanctions and export control orders.
