As part of the round table, Ivan Timofeev, RIAC Director of Programs, made a presentation of the report on sanctions against Russia: approaches to analysis and risk structure for the economy, in which he touched upon the problems of risk assessment and the impact of sanctions on Russia's economy. Then Yury Kuznetsov, Leading Researcher at FRI Center for Financial Policy, presented a report on financial transfer mechanism of sanctions and the possibilities to counter it, which outlined the existing mechanisms for the transfer of the sanction effect on the international financial system, as well as the possibility of creating alternative payment systems, which, in addition to more effective international settlements, allow avoiding unilateral restrictive measures of individual countries.

During the discussion, the participants also addressed the issues of evaluating the effectiveness of measures to counter the negative consequences of the US and EU sanctions that are already being implemented in Russia, as well as the impact of the sanctions policy against Russia on the development of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).
