Many people see sanctions as deterrents to business, but that's only the case for legitimate businesses. My uncle took advantage of the sanctions on Iran during the 90's, he bought weapon parts from the US and sold them through an intermediary in Dubai to Iran, making huge margins. Was it legitimate? No. He made millions, but eventually the government caught up to him because of tax reasons. So what happened? Well believe it or not, he was fined 250K... and that's it. He got to keep a couple million in profit and didn't serve any jail time for what he did. Nowadays, we have the advantage of the internet. Even if you do get caught, you usually pay a large fine (like 250K in my uncle's case) or serve a few years in prison. Getting caught usually only occurs to the big players, not the people making a few grand here and there. White collar crime gets a lot less prison time than everyday idiot crime, due to having great lawyers that can negotiate your case for you to give you the best outcome possible. Either way, I just want to remind everyone that sanctions on Russia are growing everyday, and that creates opportunities for those willing to take risks. My advice is to look for small pockets of partnerships that were hindered due to sanctions, and then take charge. If you have ideas that you're willing to share, feel free to say so. I'm currently researching methods myself, and if I find several routes to make money, I'll keep a few to myself and perhaps share some here. ~PS, my uncle is now dead if you're wondering what happened to him. He spent money on drugs, and went overboard and died on liver failure.
