MOSCOW, Nov 14 Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen announced sanctions against the Russian military-industrial complex, Reuters reported.
According to her, the restrictive measures will affect the “transnational network of individuals and companies that have worked to purchase military technology” for Russia.
" This is part of our larger effort to disrupt Russia's military efforts and deprive it of essential equipment through sanctions and export controls,” the agency quoted Yellen as saying.
In addition, the sanctions will affect “14 individuals and 28 entities including financial intermediaries.”
The head of the US Treasury did not specify the details of the whereabouts of individuals and companies that will fall under the sanctions.
After the start of the special operation, the West increased sanctions pressure on Moscow, but this led to rising prices for electricity, fuel and food nutrition primarily in Europe and the USA themselves. As Putin noted, the policy of containing and weakening Russia is a long-term strategy of the West, but the sanctions have dealt a serious blow to the entire world economy.
