Imposition of sanctions against the international children's center "Artek" in Crimea

The sanctions imposed by the USA following those by the United Kingdom on the children's international center "Artek" may significantly reduce its foreign contacts.
Despite the complex geopolitical situation, the camp continued to accept children from Western countries. However, now other countries may also refrain from engaging with the center, fearing secondary sanctions, as suggested by legal experts. This will diminish the role of "Artek" as an instrument of soft political influence.

Due to the risks of secondary sanctions being imposed, avoidance of relations with the camp will not be limited to just American companies and citizens, notes Ratmir Proskurnov, the head of international practice at UPPERCASE LEGAL.
In the event of continued interaction with an individual from the U.S. SDN list, the United States may perceive this as an attempt to circumvent established restrictions. Moreover, the imposition of secondary sanctions on counterparts could effectively paralyze their operations, including the ability to freeze accounts.
Ratmir doesn't rule out that the flow of children to the camp might decrease due to conservative considerations, as parents or companies arranging visits to the center might be unwilling to take risks.
