Jason Marczak on CNN

[On US sanctions against Rosneft related to Venezuela] “It is an important step […] I don’t expect Rosneft just to go off into the night. I think the next step is going to be how Rosneft seeks to get around those sanctions — what kind of new companies might be set up, what kind of new schemes might be set up.” Marczak also mentioned that […] sanctions are not going to force the democratic transition; they are a tool.”
