Sanctions Update 14 February 2019
DASKA II finally arrives. A group of bipartisan Senators on the Foreign Affairs Committee have introduced a revised version of the Defending American Security against Kremlin Aggression Act (DASKA). The timing coincides with the start of the annual Munich Security Conference (15-17 February) and the meeting of the EU Foreign Affairs Committee (18 February). Talk of Russian aggression will dominate both events and the latter will consider new sanctions related to the Kerch incident.
