Crackdown on Russia's Dirty Money with Brian Egan

Episode 217

Behind Putin’s power is a steady flow of illegal funds. Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the US and Europe have slapped numerous sanctions on Russian banks, officials, businesses, oligarchs and their families in an effort to flatten the Kremlin’s illicit financial flows.

And have these economic sanctions done enough to handicap Putin's war?
