On January 29, the U.S. Administration was to deliver a report to Congress on politicians and businessmen closely associated with the Russian authorities.
The Ministry of Finance must assess the consequences of various restrictive measures with respect to members of this list.
According to the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), the U.S. administration was to present a report to the Congress with a list of Russia's most influential politicians and oligarchs from Putin's entourage. It is anticipated that this list could serve as a basis for the introduction of sanctions by the U.S. Congress against Russia. However, experts believe that listing may reduce the access of these individuals to operations with foreign financial institutions, as many credit institutions will see persons from the report as those who are already under sanctions.
