The U.S. Treasury Department blacklisted TNK Trading International, a Swiss-based unit of Rosneft. Washington last month slapped sanctions on Rosneft Trading SA,
“TNK Trading International S.A. is another Rosneft subsidiary brokering the sale and transport of Venezuelan crude oil,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement.
“The Trump administration remains committed to targeting those who support the corrupt regime’s exploitation of Venezuela’s oil assets.”
Rosneft called last month’s sanctions on Rosneft Trading an “outrage” and said U.S. authorities, in conversations with the company, had repeatedly recognized that it was not breaching any restrictions.
“The persecution of oil export vessels by the United States is brutal. They pursue the vessels, they threaten the countries that buy from us,” Maduro said in a press conference that coincided with the Treasury announcement. Venezuela’s information ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The United States in January 2019 recognized Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido as the OPEC nation’s legitimate interim president and has ratcheted up sanctions and diplomatic pressure in the aftermath of Maduro’s 2018 re-election, which was widely described as fraudulent.
