If Russia attacks Ukraine, the US will cut it off from the global financial system – World – News

Referring to unnamed Western officials, The New York Times (NYT) reported on Saturday. According to his sources, the USA and its partners want to make Moscow clearly aware of the price for a possible invasion, and they would allegedly impose sanctions on Russia within a few hours.

“Plans that the United States has negotiated with the Allies in recent days include cutting off Russia’s largest financial institutions from global transactions, imposing an embargo on technologies used in the defense and consumer industries that are manufactured or designed in the United States, and arming insurgents in Ukraine that would they led a kind of partisan war against the Russian military occupation, should it occur, “says the NYT.

Western officials have been constantly warning Moscow in recent weeks of the high cost of any invasion of Ukraine in response to the transfer of tens of thousands of Russian troops to the Ukrainian border. The Kremlin refuses to plan an offensive, but according to Washington and Kiev, this scenario is imminent.

The US or the European Union have not yet announced the specific sanctions that would follow in such a case.
