It's a very important point for Russia based freelancers. How UpWork's lawyers can comment this part of DASKA bill?
“SEC. 239. SANCTIONS WITH RESPECT TO TRANSACTIONS WITH THE CYBER SECTOR OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION.
“On and after the date that is 60 days after the date of the enactment of the Defending American Security from Kremlin Aggression Act of 2018, the President shall impose five or more of the sanctions described in section 239A with respect to any person, including any financial institution, that the President determines—
“(1) engages in significant transactions with any person in the Russian Federation that has the capacity or ability to support or facilitate malicious cyber activities; or
“(2) is owned or controlled by, or acts or purports to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, a person that engages in significant transactions described in paragraph (1).“.
What should we expect if we are bona fide freelancers but currently based in Russia? Could you give some answers? Thank you.
