Visa and MasterCard will punish for Venezuela


The USA can impose sanctions against the international payment service providers Visa and MasterCard for carrying out operations in Venezuela, Reuters with reference to a source in administration of the White House writes. "The purpose of these sanctions — to continue to deprive the illegal regime [the president of Venezuela Nicholas] of Maduro of access to funds and an opportunity to steal from Venezuelans" — the interlocutor of the agency told. Also potential transactions of confidants of the head of state and imperious groups loyal to it, including military can be blocked. In more global sense of restriction are directed to depriving Caracas of access to a world financial system and the international capital market, including to block work of payment service providers on the territory of the country. And all these measures, according to the agency, conceived U.S. authorities prior to events in January when the speaker of the Venezuelan parliament Huang Guiado declared himself the interim president.
