Blinken announces new sanctions against Russia

May 30, 2023

On Wednesday, the United States will announce new sanctions against Russia, including those targeting technologies used in Iranian kamikaze drones.

This was announced during a visit to Sweden on Tuesday by U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, according to a Yevropeiska Pravda correspondent.

"Tomorrow we will announce new measures that will complement our export control measures for technologies found in Iranian drones used to strike Ukrainian civilians and civilian infrastructure," Blinken said.


He added that new US sanctions will also be aimed at countering Russian disinformation and "protecting human rights defenders on the Internet".

As you know, since the summer of 2022, Russia has been using Iranian-made Shahed drones in Ukraine, which it calls its own Geranium development. Since then, the United States and other Western countries have consistently imposed sanctions on Iranian companies and people involved in the production of drones and their provision to Russia.
