Washington Includes Three More Russian Companies on Sanctions List

The US has prepared a new unpleasant surprise for Russia

Soon after the expansion of American sanctions against Russia for illegal “elections” in Crimea, Washington added to the “blacklist” three more companies from the aggressor country.

According to the document, which was published by the State Department on February 13, restrictions are imposed on the Shipunov Instrument Design Bureau in Tula, the Scientific and Production Association of Mechanical Engineering and the Kumertau Aviation Production Enterprise.

As noted, sanctions were imposed in connection with the violation of the U.S. law on the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction against Iran, North Korea, and Syria, which provides for a ban on the transfer to these countries of technologies that contribute to the creation of nuclear, chemical, bacteriological weapons, as well as their delivery vehicles.

In addition to Russian companies, five companies from China entered the sanctions list (Dandong Zhensheng Trade Co., Ltd., Gaobeidian Kaituo Precise Instrument Co. Ltd., Shenzhen To join Communications Technology Co. Ltd., Shenzhen Xiangu High-Tech Co., Ltd., Wuhan Sanjiang Import and Export Co., Ltd), as well as one from Iraq (Kata'ib Sayyid al-Shuhada) and Turkey (Eren Carbon Graphite Industrial Trading Company, Ltd.).

Recall that in December, the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted to impose so-called “sanctions from hell” against Russia. The document will oblige the US president to publicly urge “the Russian leadership to return Crimea to Ukraine’s control, to urge the Russian Federation to stop supporting forces committing violence in eastern Ukraine.”

In addition, in August, the second package of US sanctions against Russia came into force in the case of the poisoning in the British Salisbury of ex-GRU officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia.
