Development Day conference in Stockholm addresses strategies to counter Russian aggression and support Ukraine

The Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE) is set to host its annual Development Day conference on December 5 at the Stockholm School of Economics. The focus lies on sanctions and other strategies to curb Russian export revenues and the Russian war economy more generally, support Ukraine's reconstruction efforts, and combat disinformation.

Ukrainian government, Swedish State Secretary, and Experts address key issues on sanctions, trade, and reconstruction efforts

The conference 'How to Undermine the Russian War Effort and Support Ukraine' includes presentations from the Ukrainian government and Håkan Jevrell, Swedish State Secretary to the Minister for International Development Cooperation and Foreign Trade, and a long list of international and national experts.

The program will feature both analytical presentations of the current situation and moderated panel discussions. Key topics include the effectiveness of sanctions on Russian energy exports and imports of sanctioned goods from the West, trade and smuggling through neighbouring countries, and sanctions violations of Western companies. The conference will also scrutinize efforts to release frozen Russian assets to contribute to Ukraine's reconstruction and discuss disinformation and the hybrid war over the medial narrative.
