Are sanctions on Russia working?

It’s been almost a year now since Russia invaded Ukraine. Soon after, the West responded with sanctions on Moscow. But have those sanctions actually worked?

Here & Now‘s Scott Tong speaks with Vladimir Milov, former deputy minister of energy of Russia. In his new piece in Foreign Affairs, titled “The Sanctions on Russia Are Working,” he writes that they are having a “profound effect on the Russian economy.” 

Correction: The audio incorrectly states that the guest’s article is published in Foreign Policy. It was published in Foreign Affairs.
