Crisis in Ukraine

The Russian invasion of Ukraine, while first and foremost a horrific humanitarian disaster, has enormous implications for financial markets, financial contracts, and financial market dispute settlement. 


On 3 May, P.R.I.M.E. Finance held a roundtable in New York to discuss the crisis arising from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and its implications for the financial markets and legal disputes. Nigel Gould-Davies, Senior Fellow for Russia and Eurasia for the International Institute for Strategic Studies and former senior British diplomat, opened the discussion by sharing his thoughts on the origins of the Ukraine crisis and the prospects of resolution. Subsequent panels discussed market implications of the crisis and the prospect for disputes involving financial instruments, such as credit default swaps and sovereign debt.
