US Imposes 'Crushing Package' With 'Hundreds, Hundreds, Hundreds' Of Sanctions Against Russia

Victoria Nuland has revealed the details.

The US will impose a "crushing package" of sanctions against Russia in the coming days that will include "hundreds and hundreds and hundreds" of new restrictions, Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland said.

She said the new sanctions will aim to limit Russia's ability to circumvent existing bans, as well as reduce the country's military capabilities. "But I expect that over time we will be able to impose more and more sanctions," Nuland stressed during a speech at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies.

According to Bloomberg source in the US Treasury Department, Washington will impose sanctions against more than 500 people and organisations linked to the Russian military machine. Wally Adeyemo, deputy head of the department, specified that the restrictions will also affect companies in third countries that "help facilitate Russia's access to the goods it needs." The measures will be announced on Friday, February 23, the White House said.

Part of the restrictions will target those whom the U.S. considers responsible for the death of politician Alexei Navalny in penal colony No. 3 in Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, Nuland said. The European Union earlier promised to introduce sanctions against Russia in connection with Navalny's death. Britain, in turn, has already announced restrictions against the management of the colony.

London also introduced sanctions on the second anniversary of the beginning of the war in Ukraine. The new CEO of ALROSA Pavel Marinychev, chairman of Mechel Igor Zyuzin, Arctic LNG 2 and its director Oleg Karpushin and others fell under them.

The EU is expected to approve the 13th package of sanctions against Russia by February 24. According to Bloomberg, restrictions may be imposed on 55 companies and 60 people from Russia, which are associated with the production of weapons or supplies of key technologies and electronic components to Russian defence industry enterprises. The sanctions list may also include a number of officials, including Colonel-General Alexei Dyumin, the governor of Tula Region.
