Likewise, the entity expresses the Department of the Treasury of the United States (USA) blocks operations of Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV) to avoid the allocation of funds for purchase of medicines and food necessary for the social protection of the population.

The financial blockade directly affects routine international payments for goods and services.
No doubt remains that the blockade of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela is intended to deepen the sabotage of the Venezuelan people’s social and economic life.
The blockade is applied so as to affect Venezuela’s population directly, but the government has acted to neutralize or at least mitigate the effects of the “Trump-Borges pact,” a new way of describing the U.S. intervention and coup.
