WSJ: Washington is preparing new sanctions against Moscow and Beijing

9 декабря 2022, 06:41
The United States is set to announce further sanctions on Russia and China on Dec. 9 targeting alleged human rights abuses in both countries.

According to the Wall Street Journal, citing its sources, most of the sanctions will be introduced in accordance with the so-called Magnitsky Act. Another part of the restrictions will affect Iranian drones, which, according to the interlocutors of the newspaper, are allegedly located on the territory of the Russian Federation. Moscow, we recall, has repeatedly denied these data.

In addition, the States accuse China of supporting illegal fishing in the Pacific Ocean, for which it was also decided to introduce restrictive measures.
