On the latest episode, Brian and Tim review the recent series of U.S. actions targeting Russia for its treatment of Aleksey Navalny and debate whether U.S.-Russia relations have now reached a tipping point. Next, we discuss the first failed attempt to get JCPOA 2.0 off the ground, ponder what the U.S. will do about Myanmar in the face of worsening post-coup conditions, and share some key takeaways from OFAC's recent settlement with BitPay. Finally, in the Lightning Round, we check in on the ICTS Supply Chain interim final rule, which appears to be here to stay, and briefly contemplate the prospects of the U.S.-Cuba Trade Act of 2021.
