The United States and its allies are preparing a new round of sanctions, this time looking to cap the sales prices of Russian exports of refined petroleum products, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing two unnamed people familiar with the matter.

According to the people who spoke with the WSJ, the sanctions will set a price limit on diesel and fuel oil and are set to go into effect on Feb. 5.

This fresh round of sanctions follow a decision last month by the U.S., EU and other Group of Seven countries to cap the price of Russian crude exports at $60 a barrel.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky criticized the price cap as not going far enough in punishing Russia for its war against Ukraine.

According to the WSJ report, the penalties on the two types of refined products could have bigger economic consequences, and market watchers expect Russia will have a more difficult time reorienting its exports of refined products.

Even after sanctions, Russian economy can pay for war

Western partners have been deliberating key decisions on military assistance for Ukraine for "too long," President Volodymyr Zelensky said on May 20 in an interview with Reuters. The president described the delivery of aid, particularly badly needed air defense, as "one big step forward, but before that, two steps back."
