Iran’s Master Class in Evading Sanctions​



The most important resource Tehran can share with Moscow is expertise in evading Western sanctions. Iran’s clerical regime reportedly is talking with the Kremlin about working together to get around the restrictions they both face. If the U.S. and its allies want to limit this sort of cooperation, they should learn from the mistakes they made while employing sanctions to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
Iran’s sanctions-evasion techniques are sophisticated and sweeping. The Journal reported last month that Tehran has developed a “clandestine banking and finance system to handle tens of billions of dollars in annual trade banned under U.S.-led sanctions.”
Tehran could teach Moscow how to replicate this illicit financial architecture, or the clerical regime could serve as the Kremlin’s broker, taking a cut of the covert trade it facilitates on Russia’s behalf. The combination of Russian and Iranian expertise in illicit financial activities could produce the world’s most sophisticated and expansive sanctions-evasion network. If Western sanctions lose their bite, the pressure on Moscow to end its invasion of Ukraine and other threats would diminish.

It looks like Americans' bottom is on fire. The words that American terrorist has used in the original WSJ report shows they need to Apply burnol.

Russia-Iran cooperation in this field can not only allow them to evade the one way sanctions of west but also supply China with a safe, cost effective and stable source of energy.

One thing more, i had to add, the way dollar works in the international transactions will be Limited to the western hemisphere.

Even India is already aligning itself with Russian payment rules. Dollar is the achilles of eastern countries, they can be sanctioned so easily if they still use dollar as a reserve currency.

Dollar imposed its inflation on the hosting country like a leech that sucks other nations' blood for American supremacy.

This network of sanctioned countries can lead to ending dollar dominance in the world markets.
