First ever cargo of Russian gas delivered to the U.S. - despite U.S. sanctions

A shipment of gas from a Russian company is anchored in Massachusetts Bay and set to unload fuel in New England despite being on the U.S. Treasury Department’s sanctions list; this will be the “first shipment of gas [from Russia] to ever reach the United States.” However, Russian gas was only part of the ship’s cargo, and because “gas from other European sources was also included” enforcement of sanctions would be difficult. Such enforcement is difficult because gas cargos “can change hands frequently and are often mixed with fuel from multiple locations” before reaching their final destination. The Treasury Department declined to comment.
