WASHINGTON, Sep 28 – PRIME The United States will only be sanctioned by legal entities with ties to the G7 for non-compliance with the Russian oil price cap, Elizabeth Rosenberg, assistant secretary of the Treasury for combating the financing of terrorism and crime, said.
“Yes, that’s right,” Rosenberg said at a Senate committee hearing on the question of whether legal entities from countries participating in the agreement would be subject to sanctions for non-compliance with the decision to limit the price of oil from the Russian Federation.
According to Rosenberg, if, for example, Asian countries buy oil without complying with the agreement, without using the services of the G7 countries, then in order to subject them to sanctions, “no legal ties are seen.” Russia does not have enough service capabilities to provide such sales, Rosenberg is convinced.
She noted that there are opportunities for sanctions against those who evade compliance with the price cap decision. “There is the possibility of persecution of those who evade if they violate these measures and have some legal connection with us,” Rosenberg said.
The West stepped up sanctions pressure on Russia over Ukraine, which led to higher prices for electricity, fuel and food in Europe and the United States. Russian President Vladimir Putin has previously stated that the policy of containing and weakening Russia is a long-term strategy for the West, and sanctions have dealt a serious blow to the entire global economy. According to him, the main goal of the West is to worsen the lives of millions of people. The Russian Federation has repeatedly stated that Russia will solve all the problems that the West creates for it.
