    The issue of sanctions against the terrorist state and persons who support and facilitate aggression became the central topic of the meetings of First Deputy Prime Minister - Minister of Economy of Ukraine Yuliia Svyrydenko with U.S. Treasury’s Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Brian Nelson and U.S. Department of State Sanctions Coordinator James O’Brien.

    The meetings were held on November 9-10 in Washington, D.C. as part of the working visit of the Ukrainian delegation headed by the First Deputy Prime Minister.

    Yuliia Svyrydenko informed the American counterparts about measures taken by Ukraine to strengthen sanctions pressure on the aggressor since the beginning of the large-scale invasion. In particular, she told about the work of the Interagency Working Group on the implementation of state sanctions policy established in late summer by decision of the Government.

    During the meetings, the parties discussed in detail the coordination between Ukraine and the U.S. on further increasing the sanctions pressure on russia in order to deprive it of resources to further finance its aggression against Ukraine, as well as the access of the russian military-industrial complex to Western technologies and components for the production of weapons.

    The parties also discussed cooperation aimed at further synchronization of Ukrainian and American sanctions.

    “As President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said, sanctions are a modern, very powerful, but at the same time humane weapon. Sanctions do not kill people. On the contrary, they reduce aggressor’s ability to kill peaceful Ukrainians, weakening it. That is why sanctions should be applied to the fullest extent. And sanctions synchronized between partner states have the greatest effect. That is why we pay special attention to synchronization and mirroring of sanctions,” Yuliia Svyrydenko noted following the meetings.
