WHAT ARE INTERNATIONAL SANCTIONS? | IE EXPLAINS
Eight individuals and seven organizations were sanctioned
The US Treasury Department on Wednesday imposed sanctions on individuals and organizations associated with Russian businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin and involved in a campaign to increase Russian influence in the Central African Republic (CAR). Also, measures have been taken against persons directly assisting the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation and those who help persons involved in the sanctions lists bypass American sanctions.
“Yevgeny Prigozhin has an international network of supporters to spread harmful political and economic influence around the world,” Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin said, adding that the United States will continue to take action to limit Prigozhin’s ability to conduct operations on a global scale..
The sanctions are directed against eight individuals and seven organizations directly involved in promoting Prigozhin’s activities in the CAR, assisting the FSB or participating in sanctions evasion.
The list includes citizens of the Russian Federation Boris Gaikovich, Elena Ivanova, Yevgeny Khodotov, Nadezhda Kuchimova, Alexander Kuziy and Vladislav Zanin, as well as a citizen of Finland Nikita Kovalevsky and Dmitry Syty, whose citizenship is not indicated.
The sanctions list includes companies associated with these people registered in Russia, the Central African Republic or Finland: Acex Oy, Gch Finland Oy, Lobaye Invest, "M-Finance", "NPP PT Okeanos", Optima Freight Oy, Unicum Trade Oy.
As noted in the Treasury statement, these measures continue the efforts of the US government to hold the Russian intelligence services, including the FSB, accountable for committing a number of destabilizing actions, such as malicious cyber activity and interference in elections..
