US Congress receives list of Russian entities targeted under new sanctions
New York Times published on Thursday the list of entities, which includes the Federal Security Service, Foreign Intelligence Service, Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, as well as Rosoboronexport, Rostec and United Aircraft Corporation, APA reports quoting Sputnik.
Earlier in the day, the State Department said that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson provided the US Congress with a list ofentities and individuals that should be targeted under the latest sanctions against Russia.
"Secretary Tillerson directed the State Department to issue the guidance, which identifies the persons and entities, who are a part of or work on behalf of Russian military and intelligence departments," Nauert said. "Secretary Tillerson signed off on that and delivered it to the Capitol Hill."
The United States is not imposing sanctions on individuals listed in this guidance by specifying them, the document noted. However, some of the persons or entities mentioned can also be "subject to sanctions imposed by other authorities."
The US government aims to engage with its global partners to help them determine and avoid participating in possibly sanctionable activity, especially when it relates to Russian-produced military equipment sales, the document added.
The guidance may be changed in the future depending on circumstances, the document said.
In early August, Washington imposed its newest package of anti-Russia sanctions, which urged Moscow to announce that the diplomatic presence of the United States would be cut by 755 people to 455, the same number of diplomatic personnel that Russia had in the United States.
