    The only reason they are doing it evade sanctions is because someone played the sanction card.. Hence people need to play around it.

    If a sanction wasnt in play, noone would need to play around it.

    On the other hand if the deal is bad enough for Russia why not. I know that’s certainly not at all whats the case here but:
    If some European country gets over 50 percent of the profit of some Russian exports and gives it partially to Ukraine, Nato or EU we would effectively over time relatively to each Other get richer while Russias economy would continuesly shrink.
    Now you could say they still get 30-50 percent or so which is more than 0%. Which is why I would say that can only make sense if it is to expect that Russia finds a way to sell their stuff somewhere anyway at some point and would get a similar or bigger portion than with us.

    But still I don’t think that’s super realistic but I think an interesting thought

    This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original]( reduced by 72%. (I’m a bot)
    > 100 1 minute read. Ukrainian Defense Intelligence has accused Georgia, as well as Armenia and Azerbaijan of negotiating with Moscow over the reexport of Russian products to international markets.

    > The Georgian Government has reiterated since the early days of the war that Tbilisi would not impose bilateral sanctions against Moscow, hit by massive international sanctions.

    > Ukraine's renewed accusation comes amid already strained relations between Tbilisi and Kyiv, after President Volodymyr Zelenskyy recalled Ambassador from Georgia over the "Immoral position" of Garibashvili's cabinet on "Not joining" sanctions and for barring Georgian volunteers from flying to Ukraine.

    Serbia and Hungary have been openly supporting Russia and have received no sanctions. I doubt these countries will either

    I’m surprised Georgia isn’t trying to get it’s land back off russia rather than trying to help it.

    Georgia? If it’s true I strongly suspect they’re not negotiating, they’re being blackmailed.

    They are very small countries so even if they buy stuff from Russia

    Nothing is going to happen

    But I thought Russia said they didn’t want to depend on the west, so why would they keep trying to export their products there?

    If that’s true, then I would think that the increased export volume would be significant and obvious.

    Honestly Georgians are really nice people. It’s sad that their government is playing their own game.

    It is extremely easy to monitor and preemptively seize illegal re-export from those countries by volumes due to their size. The main problem is Kazakhstan and China.

    Just curious here, but ELI5: technically, besides obvious reasons like a military action against them, since this is all done under the table to avoid the sanctions, what stop these countries from exporting Russia’s stuff and then keeping the money for themselves?

    Without knowing all the facts, my knee jerk reaction is that the more of a united front the world shows against Russia, the more effective the sanctions will be. It might even keep Russia from invading those countries that are guilty of evading those sanctions. As history has shown with Hitler, there is no appeasement that works with these tyrants.

    I’m surprised Kazakhstan doesn’t included on the list

    Maybe they keep neutrality until now
