    And Britain that joined them // Context

    At the same time as the United States, the United Kingdom announced new anti-Russian sanctions, banning Russia from accessing the services of its engineering, architectural, auditing, legal and advertising companies. In addition, the authorities of the kingdom imposed a ban on the supply of about 700 goods to the Russian Federation. Prior to the aggravation of relations between the Russian Federation and the West, Russian specialists actively cooperated with engineering and architectural firms from Britain and used their solutions. However, lately these contacts have come to naught. For example, in March, Zaha Hadid Architects, which had been working here for several decades, announced its withdrawal from Russia. Hussein Pliev, a member of the Delovaya Rossiya Construction Committee, says that if the UK authorities prohibit Russian developers from accessing British architectural bureaus, this will not significantly affect the Russian market. According to him, work with any foreign bureau during the implementation of the project is primarily marketing and creating prestige for buyers, and Russian architects perform all the technical part and adaptation to local realities. In addition, work with foreign counterparties has become more complicated since March due to the disconnection of some Russian banks from SWIFT, Mr. Pliev adds.
