TARGETED OFAC SANCTIONS AGAINST RUSSIA SIGNAL A MORE FOCUSED, TACTICAL APPROACH WHICH WILL HURT

Yesterday's announcement from Treasury, involving OFAC sanctions now placed against  companies, individuals, and even the oil tankers involved, that supply fighter jet fuel to the Russian Air Force in Syria, could indicate that the United States is committed to punitive sanctions, directly intended to interfere with Russia's pro-regime policies in Syria. Whether this is merely the tip of the iceberg we cannot say, but the timing is peculiar . The President of the United States may be favoring Russia in his actions abroad, but these new, blunt sanctions imposed against it demonstrate that, when it comes to career government officials, they intend to put Russia's feet to the fire for its dangerous foreign policies.
