The last couple of months have taught legal practitioners in CEE (including Russia and Turkey) that this region requires quite a bit of foresight when advising on transactions of any kind: the de-facto occupation and integration of Crimea into the Russian Federation is unlikely to have been reflected in the SPAs or long-term contracts that were negotiated in late 2013/early 2014. The occupation of a significant portion of a country sharing a common land border with four EU-member states is something few people would have thought of as a realistic scenario at that time. Well, that has changed now.
