The Economic Impact of Sanctions against Russia: Much ado about very little

Daniel Gros and Federica Mustilli

CEPS Papers from Centre for European Policy Studies

Abstract: The decision process leading to the imposition of sanctions against Russia in response to its annexation of Crimea and its subsequent military intervention in Eastern Ukraine has been very difficult for the EU, with some member states claiming that they have been particularly hard hit because exports to Russia are important to their economies. This commentary shows, however, that the economic cost in terms of lost exports, and thus potentially jobs, has in reality been negligible.
