The US eased sanctions against Russia

This was reported on the website of the US Department of the Treasury.

The Independent Oil and Gas Company, "Primornefteproduct" and related entities were excluded from the sanctions list. Restrictive measures were imposed on them in 2017 in connection with the illegal operations to transport oil to North Korea.

“The Treasury recognizes the actions taken by companies to ensure that they are not involved in activities that could benefit North Korea,” the agency said.

Now, for these companies, a ban on transactions involving individuals from the United States does not apply, and their property is unlocked.

“US sanctions do not have to be permanent, sanctions are designed to ensure a positive change in behavior,” the Finance Ministry said.

Earlier it was reported that US President Donald Trump decided to extend the anti-Russian sanctions for the annexation of the Crimean peninsula by the Russian Federation for a year.
