The USA imposed new sanctions against Venezuela — Rambler News Service


The U.S. Department of the Treasury entered Head department of military counterintelligence of the country in the list of sanctions against Venezuela. The corresponding notice is published on the official site of department. The reason for such decision they called arrest of the captain of the Navy of Venezuela Raphael Akosta. "Politically motivated arrest and the tragic death of the captain Raphael Akosta were unreasonable and inadmissible. The treasury undertakes to put an end to inhuman treatment of the former regime of Maduro with political opponents, innocent civilians and military in attempt to suppress dissent" — the Minister of Finance Stephen Mnuchin commented on imposition of sanctions. At the end of June the Ministry of Finance of the USA imposed sanctions against the son of the president of the country Nicolás Maduro. The president is in the sanctions list since June, 2017. The entered restrictive measures include freezing of assets within jurisdiction of the USA and also the ban on participation of the American citizens in any transactions connected with these assets. Besides sanctions against natural persons, on January 30 the USA imposed sanctions against the Venezuelan state oil and gas company PDVSA. Washington forbade to carry out with it transactions and also arrested assets of the company in the jurisdiction. Subsequently sanctions of the USA against Venezuela several times became tougher. In April the authorities of Venezuela reported about attempt of a coup d'etat. The political situation sharply became aggravated in January when the speaker of parliament of Venezuela Huang Guaido declared himself the interim president of the country. The U.S. President Donald Trump shortly recognized him as the interim Venezuelan leader. After it Guaido was supported by the European countries, Canada, Brazil and Argentina and others. Russia in turn expressed support to the current president of the country Nicolás Maduro.
