The countries will face consequences for any attempts to circumvent sanctions or other actions that will help Moscow in waging war, said the head of the press service of the department, Ned Price.

The U.S. authorities believe that countries that circumvent anti-Russian sanctions or assist the Russian Federation in conducting a military operation in Ukraine will face consequences. This was stated at a regular briefing for journalists by the head of the press service of the U.S. Department of State, Ned Price.

“Without talking about any particular country, we made it clear that states that are trying to circumvent the sanctions imposed by the United States and our allies and partners around the world or otherwise try to support the Kremlin’s military actions by providing financial support to Russia, supplying weapons, will face consequences,” he said.

“They will face consequences for any attempts to circumvent sanctions or other actions that will help Moscow in waging war,” the representative of the foreign ministry added.
