Sanctions and Financial Crime: Together or Apart?

... together with systemic officials and organisations that are sanctioned for political reasons. The problem could be ignored if it only applied to individual “dictatorial regimes”. However, today they are increasingly affecting major players such as Russia and China. Americans will inevitably have to cooperate with these states in countering crime, while at the same time considering them the targets of their sanctions and other repressive measures. Such a duality exists today. The big question is how long it will last. In a worst-case scenario, the Americans’ excessive use of sanctions and other measures for political purposes will make anarchy an attractive ...

How does today’s ...

... general deterioration of US-China relations and a number of other US attacks against Chinese firms. The Huawei saga is the best illustration of this point. At the same time, 2019 demonstrated that international businesses (including companies from the EU, China, Russia and other countries) were seeking to comply with the US sanctions regimes, despite the nature of their countries’ political relations with Washington. Businesses would like to distance themselves from politics and avoid the risk of being involved in US investigations, even though unilateral sanctions are ...

Europe Under Fire from US Secondary Sanctions

... Asia Ltd., a subsidiary of Russia’s Vnesheconombank (VEB), on the SSI list as part of sectoral sanctions against Russia. The Chinese Foreign Ministry’s response when its entities or individuals appear on US sanctions lists is usually icy. Just like Russia, China believes unilateral sanctions imposed by Washington bypassing the UN Security Council to be illegitimate. Still, quite often China refrains from responding. So far there have been few Chinese companies on the SDN List, with almost zero economic effect on the overall Chinese ...

... transfer it from the administrative to the political plane.  The situation with US sanctions is rather contradictory.
