It is noted in the official statement, which was published on the website of the U.S. Department of the Treasury on March 15.

In particular, the following individuals have been added to OFAC's Specially Designated Nationals List:

In addition, the following organizations have been added to the Specially Designated Nationals List of the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control: AO KONTSERN OKEANPRIBOR (St. Petersburg); AO ZAVOD FIOLENT (Simferopol); GUP RK KTB SUDOKOMPOZIT (Feodosia); LLC NOVYE PROEKTY (Moscow); LLC SK CONSOL-STROI LTD (Simferopol); PAO ZVEZDA (St. Petersburg); YAROSLAVSKY SHIPBUILDING PLANT (Yaroslavl); ZELENODOLSK SHIPYARD PLANT NAMED AFTER A.M. GORKY (Zelenodolsk).

 “The United States and our transatlantic partners will not allow Russia’s continued aggression against Ukraine to go unchecked. This joint initiative with our partners in the European Union and Canada reinforces our shared commitment to impose targeted and meaningful sanctions in response to the Kremlin’s attempts to disregard international norms and undermine Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” said Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin.

He also stressed that the international community “is strongly aligned against Russia’s naval attacks in the Kerch Strait, purported annexation of Crimea, and support for the illegitimate separatist-conducted elections in eastern Ukraine.”

As reported, the European Union officially imposed sanctions on eight Russian officials in form of freezing of assets and the prohibition on issuing visas due to the capture of Ukrainian sailors in the Kerch Strait in November 2018.
