Has Putin torn up your contracts?

24 February 2022

Matters have been moving at pace in the Ukraine in recent weeks, culminating in the movement of Russian troops into Donetsk and Luhansk on 22 February 2022. Whilst the conflict does not, at the moment, directly involve the USA or other western powers, there has certainly already been support behind the scenes and it is unknown how matters might develop. A direct declaration of war by a Western power against Russia is unlikely, but there are enough examples over the years of countries having “undeclared” wars i.e. wars without a formal declaration. If the situation continues to deteriorate in the coming weeks, greater involvement of the UN, NATO or a coalition of western forces acting outside of the UN or NATO may well be within the realms of possibility. If this were to happen, what does this mean for your contracts?
