Coup in Myanmar: Biden imposes sanctions on the military




The President of the United States called on the army of the republic to relinquish power, thus demonstrating respect for their people.

The United States imposes sanctions on those involved in the coup in Myanmar and blocks state accounts in the States. This was announced at a briefing on Wednesday, February 10, by the American leader Joe Biden.

“Today I approved a new executive order allowing us to immediately impose sanctions on the military leaders who carried out the coup, as well as their business interests and family members. The military must relinquish the power they have seized and show the world respect for the people of Myanmar.” said the head of the White House.

According to him, the republic's funds in the amount of one billion dollars are kept in bank accounts in the United States.

“The US government is taking steps to prevent generals from gaining inappropriate access to the $1 billion from Burma (Myanmar) government funds held in the US,” Biden said.

At the same time, he clarified that the specific persons who will be included in the sanctions list will be determined by the end of the week.

Recall that a military coup took place in Myanmar on the night of February 1. President Min Vying and Prime Minister Aung San Suu Kyi were taken into custody.

In this regard, mass protests broke out in the country. Today, police used water cannons, rubber bullets, and live ammunition to disperse demonstrators.
