According to the economic researches, the Russian economy experienced a slowdown, massive depreciation of the ruble by more than 50% against the US dollar in 2015, a substantial increase in the inflation rate and a substantial outflow of capital. An assessment by the (Institute of Economic Forecasting) estimates the potential impact of the sanctions for the Russian economy at 8% to 10% of GDP.

Since March 2014, the European Union has progressively imposed restrictive measures against Russia. The measures were adopted in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea and the deliberate destabilisation of Ukraine. The EU has prolonged the sanctions against Russia until 15 March 2019. The restrictive measures imposed by the EU involve: economic sanctions, diplomatic measures, individual restrictive measures (asset freeze and travel restrictions), restrictions on economic relations with Crimea and Sevastopol and restrictions on economic cooperation.

Recently, the US has adopted new sanctions against Russia over the March poisoning in the U.K. of Skripals.
