Following a sudden change in developments, the Department of International Trade are being asked to proactively advise businesses with Ukraine/Russia queries to direct them to our Export Support Service – either by phone 0300 303 8955 or online – where there’s a specific Ukraine/Russia page.
“The situation in Ukraine and Russia will continue to change over the coming days and weeks. This may involve further sanctions which could affect UK business. We recommend companies to refer to gov.uk on all the latest guidance on sanctions relating to exporting to Russia.
Companies doing business with countries subject to sanctions must accept the risks of doing so, just as they accept other political and market risks.
UK companies will need to immediately adjust their business if they are undertaking activity with those that HMG have newly designated on 22 February. We suggest you take legal advice if you suspect your business could be impacted.
You can stay up to date with the latest government notifications on export controls by signing up to the Export Control Joint Unit (ECJU) e-alert service.
