The US is pressuring its allies to tighten sanctions

The Wall Street Journal writes: “U.S. officials are moving around the world in a quiet diplomatic push to force Russia’s main trading partners to impose sanctions and trade controls. .

“The US and its allies have claimed early success in a campaign of international pressure that has disrupted Russia’s military supply chains and plunged its economy into a sharp contraction.”

“But senior Western officials say so-called sanctions leakage — lax enforcement allows banned finance and trade to flow — is undermining the campaign, helping Russia’s economy and potentially prolonging the war.”
