The administration of US President Joe Biden plans to strengthen control over cryptocurrency platforms and foreign banks on the issue of compliance with sanctions against Russia, Reports The Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed sources close to the White House.
After the introduction of current sanctions, the US authorities set the task of blocking Russia all the ways that provide imports and revenues from it, sources told the publication. At the same time, Washington intends to continue to identify the accounts and assets of Russian oligarchs, as well as punish foreign companies caught exporting goods to Russia included in the sanctions lists.
On August 8, the US Treasury imposed sanctions against the Tornado Cash cryptocurrency protocol and associated digital wallet addresses. The US authorities justified their decision by the fact that the platform was used to launder illegal crypto assets.
