“The entire G7 pledged today to ban or phase out imports of Russian oil,” the White House announced in a statement on Sunday.
” A blow “
This decision “will deal a blow to the main artery irrigating the economy of (Vladimir) Putin and deprive him of the income he needs to finance his war”, affirms the American executive, without specifying which commitments exactly each of the members of the G7 has made, namely Germany (which holds the presidency this year), Canada, the United States, France, Italy, the Japan, and the UK.
The United States, which was not a big consumer, has already banned the import of Russian hydrocarbons.
New battery of sanctions
The United States will, among other new measures, sanction three major Russian TV channels, and deprive all Russian companies of access to consulting and accounting services offered by American companies, according to a statement released Sunday by the White House. .
