Geopolitics Decanted by Silverado

How Russia is Working Around Western Sanctions and Export Controls

Episode Summary

Dmitri Alperovitch talks to Silverado's own experts - Sarah Stewart (CEO) and Andy David (Senior Director of Research and Analysis) about Silverado's new just published research report that dives deep into the analysis of Russian import trade flows to figure out how Russia is working around the export controls and sanctions it has been put under since the invasion of Ukraine. The report finds that Russia benefited from high inventory levels prior to the war and is now benefiting from China and many former Soviet republic countries transhipping goods into Russia. We also discussed our recommendations for US policy makers on how to tighten up the sanctions and export control regime to make it more effective.
