The USA has announced sanctions against 22 individuals and companies, because they did not respect the sanctions against Russia
The US Treasury Department today imposed comprehensive sanctions against 22 individuals and companies from multiple countries linked to a sanctions circumvention network that supports the Russian military-industrial complex, the Department's website said.
Over the past year, the Ministry has sanctioned more than 100 individuals and companies involved in activities to circumvent international sanctions and export controls imposed on Russia, the communique recalls.
Among those covered by the new criminal measures is the company registered in Bulgaria, U-Stone Limited EOOD. The company is listed as one of six companies listed as owned by the Cyprus-based arms dealer Alexander Wolfovich, who US officials say is close to arms dealer Igor Zimenkov.
The list includes sanctioned persons and companies registered in Cyprus, Israel and Singapore.
