Dutch exports to Russia fell significantly last year but rose to several neighbouring countries, according to figures from national statistics agency CBS. Direct exports to Russia dropped in value from €2.9 billion in 2021 to €1.7 billion in 2022, following the invasion of Ukraine in February that year and the imposition of sanctions.
