After Russia (re)invaded Ukraine in February, national sanctions imposed on Russian shipping companies and designated Russian-owned vessels and financial institutions started degrading the country’s maritime sector.
“These sanctions include the launch of “Task Force Kleptocapture” by the U.S. Treasury Department on March 2 to seize luxury yachts owned by oligarchs close to Putin. The next day, the world’s three largest container lines, A.P. Moller-Maersk A/S, MSC Mediterranean Shipping Co., and CMA CGM S.A., joined Hapag-Lloyd AG and Asia’s Ocean Network Express Pte. Ltd. in stopping service to Russia,” a source as per Lieber Institute West Point.
