Washington can impose sanctions even on allied states if they are involved in any significant deals with the Russian defense complex, said State Department Chief Anthony Blinken.
The secretary of state recalled that the U.S. Congress passed CAATSA ("Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act") in 2017 and imposed secondary sanctions on Russia's partners. "It is very important that Turkey and all U.S. allies and partners avoid future purchases of Russian weapons, including new purchases of S-400 complexes," he stressed. - Any meaningful deals with Russian weapons could fall under CAATSA."
