U.S. Department of State to impose new sanctions against Russia for those who help to ‘evade’ them

The U.S. Department of the Treasury and Department of State said that new sanctions against Russia would be applied against the companies and people, who help those, who are already under sanctions.

The U.S. Department of State intends to impose new sanctions against Russia, in particular against the individuals, who help those, who are already under sanctions and help them to “surpass” the restrictions. It was stated by the U.S. administration answering the question of the Finnish broadcasting company Yle about sanctions policy, Joinfo.ua reports.

The broadcasting company was interested in whether Rosatom had fallen under the effect of the sanctions.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury said there would not be any detailed comments and the future plans of the State Department would not be declassified.

But at the same time, they have stated that if necessary, there will be introduced new sanctions for greater efficiency. And they will be targeted especifically against those individuals, who help the people, who already are under the sanctions.

Earlier, the U.S. has expanded the sanctions list against Russia. The U.S. included the son of Boris Rotenberg, Roman, and the son Viktor Yanukovych, Alexander, in the list of persons against whom the sanctions are imposed in connection with the aggression in the Donbas and annexation of Crimea.

The list has a total of 11 people and 15 legal entities. Sectoral sanctions are extended against 35 enterprises. Updates in the sectoral sanctions list are applied to the oil and gas and banking sectors – the Rosneft company and Vnesheconombank of Russia. The list was published on July 30 on the site of the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
