The special advisor to President Joe Biden for Latin America, Juan González, assured this Friday that the dictatorships of Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua will be affected by the international sanctions imposed against Vladimir Putin’s regime after the invasion and military aggression undertaken against Ukraine. .
“The sanctions on Russia are so robust that they will have an impact on those governments that have economic affiliations with Russia, that is by design,” the US official told the Voice of America.
The special advisor and Senior Director of the White House National Security Council for the Western Hemisphere, affirmed that those who are linked to money laundering operations and countries that operate outside the international system “will feel the squeeze of these sanctions”, especially those imposed against the main Russian banks.
The President of the United States, Joe Biden; British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson; and other world leaders have roundly condemned the Russian intervention and are preparing an unprecedented list of sanctions.
UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, announced the biggest and most severe sanctions package Russia has ever seen, freezing the assets of major Russian banks and legislating to prevent Russian companies from accessing financing, in addition it will veto the airline Aeroflot.
Likewise, the United States and its allies will block the assets of four large Russian banks, impose controls on US exports and sanction the Russian oligarchs linked to Putin’s dictatorship, according to President Joe Biden.
