    European Sanctions: Mandatory Contract Clauses, New Criminal Penalties

    BackgroundFollowing Russia’s occupation of Crimea in 2014 and invasion of Ukraine in 2022, global allies including the UK, US and EU, Canada and Australia, acted in concert to impose stringent sanctions and export control restrictions designed to stem the flow of investment into the Russian war machine.

    In Verein KlimaSeniorinnen Schweiz and Others v.
