Watching Russian troops invade Ukraine prompted us to record an emergency podcast episode on the recent developments of this crisis that is now a war. In addition to reflecting on these events, we discuss the tools available to Western countries to support Ukraine and punish Russia. We also go into depth about the role of sanctions in this conflict, including explaining the types of sanctions imposed on Russia and further measures under consideration. While sanctions do not have a good track record of foreign policy change, they are more than symbolic tools.
