Intent of our implementation of CAATSA is to impose costs on Russia: Jinnie Lee
FLASH: Intent of our implementation of CAATSA is to impose costs on Russia for its malign behaviour, including by stopping flow of money to Russia’s defense sector. CAATSA is not intended to impose damage to the military capabilities of our allies or partners. The waiver authority is not for a blanket waiver. It's transaction-specific. There are strict criteria for considering a waiver. Waivers of CAATSA section 231 will be considered on a transaction-by-transaction basis. We cannot prejudge any sanctions decisions: Jinnie Lee, Spox US Embassy.
