The EU and the United States announced a tougher set of sanctions against Russia on 29 July 2014, aimed at putting pressure on the country over the conflict in eastern Ukraine. Antonios Tzanakopoulos assesses the legality of the sanctions and their likelihood of success. He writes that while sanctions have the potential to encourage Russia to scale back its support for separatists in Ukraine, it is too early to tell how effective they will be in the long-term.
