In the year since Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, it has become clear that sanctions, although eﬀective, need to be signiﬁcantly strengthened to prevent Russia from continuing to wage war. This conclusion was reached by the participants of the brieﬁng organized by the Economic Security Council of Ukraine, which took place on February 28, 2023, at the Media Center Ukraine with the participation of experts from the ESCU, the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), as well as representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Aﬀairs, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, and the National Agency on Corruption Prevention (NACP). According to the experts, the most urgent tasks are to combat the circumvention of restrictions by Russia and its partners as well as expand the sanction coalition, which must include not only democratic countries but also countries of the Global South. The experts also concluded that Ukraine should work more in the ﬁeld of sanctions at the national and international levels, with states and non-governmental institutions, to make the restrictions as eﬀective as possible.
