US imposes sanctions against Rosneft subsidiary


The US Treasury Department imposes sanctions against the Swiss company Rosneft Trading SA, which is a subsidiary of Russian Rosneft. This decision was made in connection with its activities in Venezuela.


This was announced by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on his Twitter page.

According to the Secretary of State, Washington “cut off Maduro’s vital artery” in this way, which allowed him to circumvent US sanctions against the Venezuelan oil industry.

Pompeo claims that Rosneft Trading SA is a key player in the oil trade from the Bolivarian Republic around the world, bypassing sanctions. In particular, with the participation of the company, Caracas delivered over the past month approximately 2 million barrels of crude oil from Venezuela to West Africa.

Not only the company itself fell under American restrictions, but also personally the chairman of its board of directors, Didier Kasimiro. In combination, he also holds the position of Vice President of Rosneft.

Mike Pompeo clarified exactly what restrictions are in question:

All property and shares in the property of Rosneft Trading and Didier Kasimiro in the United States, either under the control or in the ownership of American citizens or any companies belonging to them directly or indirectly by 50 percent or more, will be blocked.

The decision to impose sanctions against the Swiss company and its head was made personally by US President Donald Trump.

      It will be at least very strange if, in the United States, after the permanent imposition of sanctions on various Russian companies, the ownership of Rosneft Trading and Didier Kasimiro takes place.

          It seems obvious why it was created. Trade Venezuelan oil without substituting the parent company. It’s quite a normal move.

      So Rosneft will start asking for money from the Russian government because of lost profits. Gasoline prices may jump.

        Do you have any ideas how to prevent this? This news is for hype and to justify subsequent price increases at gas stations. Therefore, I will not worry if in the oil chain - Venezuela-Switzerland-Russia, one of the offshore companies and gasket companies does not count a couple of three billion. And what you may be experiencing (which I doubt very much) is nothing more than interesting emotions for anyone.

        Do you believe in this? Not for that they stole, not for that the country was ruined so that they and their children would live here. Do you think the daughter of Peskov, Lavrov, Zhukov, the grandson of Zolotov, misulin, and so on, on the list, come back here? They call our country trash, and us cattle.

      Sergey, well, why are you happy? All these sanctions will be answered by our state budget. In which taxes we pay. And under the guise of compensation for losses and the price of gas, they will again trample upwards, and they will come up with some kind of tax - such as compensation for sanctions. In our country, we always and in everything win back on our own people. You can’t snarl at Americans. Since the accounts of those in power, real estate, children and the rear - where?

        Alexey hi And I, too, rejoice, rejoice in how even the local Urya-racers, how they were rightly christened here, finally understood what the current system is like, many have already understood through pension reform, through taxes, but there are still horses that continue grimacing and clowning around.
