Venezuela claims that imposing sanctions on Russia “disturbs” the energy market

Caracas, February 1. The Venezuelan Oil Minister, Tareck El Aissami, pointed out this Wednesday, at the virtual meeting of the OPEC Ministerial Joint Monitoring Committee, that imposing sanctions on Russia “disturbs” the global energy market.

“They have just established or are announcing sanction measures against Russia, an OPEC+ partner of ours, a major producer of energy, crude oil, gas, and this dramatically affects and disrupts the global market,” he said in a video shared on the TikTok social network.

The minister affirmed that the West continues to “target” the countries that are part of the “equilibrium equation” of the oil market.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and Japanese Foreign Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi today reaffirmed their commitment to continue providing support to Ukraine through sanctions on Russia after a meeting in Tokyo.

“We would like to further promote cooperation in various fields between Japan and NATO as partners who share fundamental values,” Stoltenberg said in a statement released by the Japanese Foreign Ministry on Thursday.

The United States also sanctioned 22 individuals and organizations on Wednesday for helping Russia’s defense industry evade US sanctions amid the war in Ukraine.

The Treasury Department explained in a statement that those sanctioned have, in fact, supported Russia in the military field to avoid the sanctions imposed against it.
