Role of International Sanctions and the Crisis in Ukraine (10/26/15)

Sanctions have been employed in order to persuade Russia both to halt its activities in Ukraine and to prompt a political settlement of the issues that led to the crisis that began in 2013.

What, if any, have been their unintended consequences? And under what circumstances should they be relieved?
