Additional US sanctions imposed against Russian businessmen and companies
The US Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has updated the Specially Designated Nationals List and the Sectoral Sanctions Identifications List on July 30 regarding Russian businessmen and companies.
Sectoral sanctions were imposed against companies within VEB and Rosneft groups. In particular, Russian Direct Investment Fund Management Company, VEB-Leasing OJSC, VEB Capital, Sviaz-Bank, RN-Yuganskneftegaz LLC, Rosneft-Trading, Eksiar and Globeks Bank, according to the US Department of the Treasury report.
Roman Rotenberg, Serhiy Kurchenko and Oleksandr Yanukovych (son of ousted Ukrainian ex-president Viktor Yanukovych) also appear on an updated sanctions list.
As UNIAN reported earlier, Russia recognizes that the US sanctions may stay in force for a long period of time, and is ready for such developments, as Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev stated.
