The U.S. and the EU are considering the possibility of disconnecting individual banks and companies from SWIFT, and not Russia as whole, additional sanctions may also follow in the event of the “capture of Kyiv,” CNN reported, citing a source in the Biden administration.

“The U.S. officials and their colleagues in the EU continue to weigh options, including sanctions aimed at disconnecting individual banks and legal entities from the SWIFT network, rather than the entire Russian economy…. One administration official said additional sanctions would likely follow if Kyiv, the besieged Ukrainian capital, falls. But it was unclear whether they would include disconnecting Russia from SWIFT or it could happen sooner,” the channel said in a statement.

The decision to disconnect Russia from SWIFT may be made within a few days, the media reported earlier with reference to the head of one of the central banks of the Eurozone.
