In light of the current situation, businesses are advised to contact the government’s Export Support Service helpline with any questions about trade with Russia or Ukraine. Questions can be submitted either online via  or by telephone on  0300 303 8955. Calls are being answered daily between 08:00-22:00

All the latest information relating to the situation is being published on, and major changes will be tweeted out via the usual HMG feeds.  

The following links are to the FCO travel advice pages for Russia and Ukraine, and to the guidance on the new sanctions regime.

If there are any particular local impacts of the current conflict, the LEP is keen to capture this in our regular returns to BEIS so that we can make them aware of any impacts and help inform any future support that may be required.  Businesses can let us know about this via email
