Why sanctions fail to stop Russia’s attack on Ukraine


This is the second installment of a three-part discussion between Asia-Pacific Initiative (API) leaders on the geoeconomics surrounding Russia’s war in Ukraine and changes in the international order. The discussion involved research director Yuichi Hosoya, a professor at Keio University School of Law; Ken Jimbo, executive director of the Japanese-American Military Statesmen’s Forum and professor at Keio University; and lead researcher Kazuto Suzuki, a professor at the University of Tokyo.

KS: In the previous episode, we discussed the characteristics of the Russian-Ukrainian war and the role of the United Nations, which is said to be dysfunctional. All three of us have come to the conclusion that the current UN is insufficient to create a world without war. In such a situation, the only thing that can stop war is deterrence.
