OREANDA-NEWS. The US Department of the Treasury monitors the transactions of businessmen and companies from Russia in order to prevent possible circumvention of anti-Russian sanctions on their part. This is reported by the Financial Times, citing a source.
It is noted that the American department warned both entrepreneurs and companies about the appropriate actions. In addition, the United States can monitor the actions of individuals against whom sanctions have not yet been imposed.
According to the publication, Washington revealed a “splash of attempts” by some Russian citizens and companies to hide transactions. According to the source of the newspaper, in the United States they allegedly fix the transfer of funds to new partners, as well as, probably, the creation of fictitious companies.
“We are monitoring such actions,” the US Treasury said.
On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that he had decided to conduct a military special operation in Ukraine in response to a request for help from the heads of the LPR and DPR.
After the start of the special operation of the Russian Federation in Ukraine, the West introduces more and more stringent anti-Russian sanctions against banks and companies. Some foreign brands announced their withdrawal from the Russian market. According to Russian President Vladimir Putin, anti-Russian sanctions undermine the global economy and hit ordinary citizens.
