“All of this uncertainty is creating a very strong chilling effect across the market,” said Fritz Lodge, a principal at the Scowcroft Group. “Especially at this level, sanctions begin to have a mind of their own and begin to affect behavior in ways that are really unpredictable.

“This could begin looking like a real decoupling between Russia and the West,” Lodge said. “Electric-vehicle manufacturers, automobiles [and], other tech manufacturers will probably start looking to reallocate, realign their supply chains. I think that that trend will continue over time.”
