The US has imposed new sanctions against Venezuela

The United States has blocked the entry of former Venezuelan electricity Minister Luis Alfredo Motte Dominguez and former Deputy electricity Minister and purchasing Director of the national electric company Corpoelec of the Bolivarian Republic Eustiquio Jose Lugo Gomez, US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo said.

“Former Venezuelan Ministers Luis Alfredo Motta Dominguez and Eustiquio Jose Lugo Gomez used their positions in power for personal enrichment, not for the enrichment of the people of Venezuela. I put Motta and Lugo on the list of those banned from entering the United States, ” he wrote on his Twitter page.

In 2019, US President Donald Trump signed a decree that Washington blocks the assets of the Venezuelan authorities.
