The government has indicated that sanctions are designed to show support for Ukraine and the NFU supports this objective.
It is important, however, that members understand how some of these sanctions might impact their businesses.
The sanctions regime
The detailed briefing identifies the most relevant sanctions to the UK agricultural sector and the steps that farmers can take to help ensure that they don’t inadvertently breach the sanctions regime.
The government is likely to increase economic sanctions against Russia further.
The international trade team will monitor the situation and update members of any developments.
It is worth noting, that the trade sanctions so far (excluding gold and energy) will apply to over 96% of Russian goods imports to the UK and to over 60% of UK goods exports to Russia.
