This evening will be dedicated to: doing business in Russia, with several speakers.

The evening will be opened by mr. A.N. Cherevko, Head of the Trade Delegation of the Russian Federation in The Netherlands, followed by three presentations:

Jeroen Ketting, Lighthouse Moscow. Russia, a book written in invisible ink.

“How it took a 23-year long journey to scratch the surface of the Russian soul. How is it that Russians derive strength from a combination of unpredictability, contradictions and relativity? And why are the words Avos, Podvig and Sudba crucial to understanding the Russian soul?”

Heleen over de Linden, Rechta Advocatuur B.V. Amsterdam. Update EU- sanctions against Russia.

Almost three years ago sanctions have been imposed against Eastern-Ukraine, Crimea and Russia.

Heleen is writing a PhD thesis about the sanctions. This evening she will inform us about the pratical implications (possibilities/impossibilities) of the sanctions. After all, the sanctions are imposed only against certains sectors, persons and companies. This does not mean that doing business with Russia became impossible. However, to have a clear picture about do's and don'ts this evening can give clearity and tools to know how to check if that what you are planning to do (or doing already) is restricted by sanctions or not.

Amsterdam Trade Bank will give a presentation about the current situation with respect to loans an financing. More details will follow soon.
