Changing Sanctions Involving Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine

The U.S. government's response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine has involved sanctions against persons and institutions in Russia and Belarus along with new licensing requirements on physical exports to these countries.

Should you have questions about how these constantly evolving sanction measures may impact your planned or ongoing activities in Russia and/or Belarus, the Office of Export Controls can provide up-to-date information and consultation.
