U.S Issues Fresh Sanctions Targeting Russia


United States (U.S.) has issued hundreds of fresh sanctions targeting Russia over the war in Ukraine.

The U.S. Treasury Department imposed sanctions on nearly 200 targets as the State Department designated more than 80 in one of the most wide-ranging actions against Chinese Companies so far in Washington’s sanctions aimed at Russia.

The U.S. imposed sanctions on 20 companies based in China and Hong Kong, following repeated warnings from Washington about China’s support for Russia’s military.

Treasury’s Action on Wednesday sanctioned nearly 60 targets located in Azerbaijan, Belgium, China, Russia, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, and Slovakia.

The move included measures against a China-based Company the Treasury said exported items for the production of drones.

The State Department also imposed sanctions on four China-based companies it accused of supporting Russia’s Defense Industrial Base.
