The United States is wary of introducing new ones sanctions against the Russian Federation for using oil tankers to circumvent preliminary restrictions. The White House believes that this will lead to an increase in oil prices, which could negatively affect Joe Biden's election campaign.

The publication writes about this The New York Times.

Journalists write that the US Treasury is proposing several steps that should harm the use of outdated oil tankers that help deliver Russian oil to buyers around the world in defiance of Western sanctions.

These efforts were supposed to be aimed at punishing Russia, but they were stymied by concerns in the White House.

“While Treasury officials want to put Russian tankers out of service, economic advisers at the White House are concerned it will risk higher oil prices this summer and higher U.S. gasoline prices. which could harm Biden’s election campaign,” the article notes.

Sources of the publication report that the Treasury measures may affect the oil market, so they are unlikely to be implemented after the end of the election campaign in the United States.

Recall that it was previously reported that The State Department is convinced that tougher sanctions are more effective than recognizing the Russian Federation as a sponsor of terrorism.
