OREANDA-NEWS  President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky signed a decree imposing sanctions on seven individuals, including citizens of Ukraine, Russia, Romania and Israel, and 86 Russian organizations. They mainly represent industrial enterprises.

The sanctions are imposed for a period of three to ten years. They provide for the complete blocking of assets, restriction of trade operations, prevention of the withdrawal of capital from the country, a ban on the transfer of technology, intellectual property rights and other measures.

Earlier, Vedomosti reported that the United States, as part of its policy of monitoring the implementation of restrictive measures, had changed tactics to cut off Russia from international settlements. They began to monitor the correspondent accounts of Russian banks abroad and personally talk to the top management of foreign financial organizations, threatening them with secondary sanctions.

As a result, the number of people willing to cooperate with Russian counterparties has sharply decreased, and the average life of correspondent accounts does not exceed six months. First of all, Americans are interested in banks from Turkey, China, the UAE, Qatar and the CIS countries.
