"As we look at Ukraine, as we look at these unprecedented sanctions, we really have to close the loopholes that are created by the Wagner Group’s presence in many countries around the world, in particular in Africa."
The “Sanctions Space” podcast is back! Justine Walker is joined by Dan Tannebaum, Atlantic Council, and Justyna Gudzowska, The Sentry. Their discussion includes the illicit activities of the Wagner Group, the potential evolution of Russia sanctions, including possible secondary sanctions and “freeze to seize” measures, as well as looking ahead to key wider risks across 2023.
Gudzowska serves as the director of Illicit Finance Policy at The Sentry, an investigative and policy organization that follows the dirty money connected to African war criminals and transnational war profiteers and seeks to shut those benefiting from violence out of the international financial system.
Tannebaum is a nonresident senior fellow at the Economic Statecraft Initiative of the Atlantic Council’s GeoEconomics Center and a partner in Oliver Wyman’s Risk and Public Policy Practice, where he leads the Anti-Financial Crime Practice for the Americas and serves as the firm’s global lead on sanctions.
