Russia and Ukraine War – Belarus Sanctions
To curb Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the West has sought to increase the economic pressure on Belarus as well due to its alleged involvement in the conflict. All previous sanctions imposed on Russia are now also imposed on Belarus along with the declaration of sanctions against some Belarus officials and entities. Export controls targeted towards Belarus are expected to impact several industries, with its economy relying majorly on manufacturing. Global companies are barred from exporting sensitive items to Belarus while preventing any routing of software or technology to restricted sectors in Russia through Belarus.
