Russia won't let the customs union get in the way of their U.S. sanctions

This just goes to show that the Eurasian Customs Union is a fraud. Russia is fine with open borders if it means its former subject territories can't impose tariffs on the resources they ship to Moscow and the people of those territories have more access to Russian products. But as soon as it interferes with any other Russian priority, those borders don't seem so open anymore.
