US Issues Additional Russian/Ukrainian Designations and New General License, EU Extends Sanctions Targeting Russia

White & Case Ukraine News Update

On December 20, 2016, the US Department of Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) added 15 individuals and entities and two vessels to the List of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (SDN List) and identified certain subsidiaries of entities included on the Sectoral Sanctions Identifications List (SSI List). The US Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is in the process of finalizing a companion rule for publication that will amend the Entity List in conjunction with certain entities designated by OFAC.

OFAC also issued General License No. 11 which authorizes certain transactions that are ordinarily incident and necessary for US persons to request, contract for, pay for, receive or utilize a project design review or permit from the Russian federal institution FAU Glavgosekspertiza Rossii, which was designated as an SDN earlier this year.1

This action follows the December 19 extension by the European Union of sanctions against Russia regarding Ukraine until July 31, 2017.2

 

New Additions to the SDN List

The US designated six individuals, each of whom holds an executive position within Bank Rossiya, ABR Management or Sobinbank. In addition, one individual was designated in connection with business dealings involving the Russian Ministry of Defense.

Four construction and transportation entities were designated for operating in the Crimea region of Ukraine and an additional four entities were designated for supporting OJSC Sovfracht. OFAC also designated the vessels "Marshal Zhukov" and "Stalingrad" as property in which Trans-Flot JSC has an interest.

All property and interests in property of these individuals and entities located in the United States or within the possession or control of a US person3, wherever located, are considered blocked and may not be dealt in. Any entity in which one or more blocked persons holds a 50 percent or greater ownership interest in the aggregate is itself considered blocked by operation of law.4 US persons may not engage in any dealings, directly or indirectly, with blocked persons.

OFAC has added the following individuals, entities, and vessels to the SDN List:

New Additions to the SSI List

The United States identified on the SSI List a number of subsidiaries owned 50 percent or more by two SSIs, the Russian Agricultural Bank and OAO Novatek. The Russian Agricultural Bank was originally designated on July 29, 2014 pursuant to Directive 1, which targets the Russian financial services sector. Directive 1 prohibits US persons from engaging in, directly or indirectly, all transactions in provision of financing for, and other dealings in new debt of longer than 30 days maturity or new equity of persons determined to be subject to Directive 1, their property, or their interests in property.

OAO Novatek was designated on July 16, 2014 pursuant to Directive 2, which targets the Russian energy sector. Directive 2 prohibits US persons from engaging in, directly or indirectly, all transactions in provision of financing for, and other dealings in new debt of longer than 90 days maturity or new equity of persons determined to be subject to Directive 2, their property, or their interests in property.

OFAC stated that, although these entities already were subject by operation of law to the same restrictions as their parent entities due to the 50 percent or greater ownership interest by SSIs, their identification on the SSI List will help the public more effectively comply with sanctions.5

FAU Glavgosekspertiza Rossii was originally designated on September 1, 2016 by OFAC pursuant to Executive Order 13685 of December 19, 2014 (EO 13685) ("Blocking Property of Certain Persons and Prohibiting Certain Transactions With Respect to the Crimea Region of Ukraine")6 in connection with its involvement in the Kerch Bridge project. FAU Glavgosekspertiza Rossii is a Russian federal institution authorized to conduct official examinations of project documentation for significant construction works in Russian Federation territory.7

General License No. 11 authorizes US persons to engage in all transactions and activities that would otherwise have been prohibited by EO 13685 and "that are ordinarily incident and necessary to requesting, contracting for, paying for, receiving or utilizing a project design review or permit from FAU Glavgosekspertiza Rossii office(s) in the Russian Federation."

For the general license to apply, the underlying project must be located wholly within the Russian Federation which, as defined in the general license, does not include the Crimea region of Ukraine. The activity also may not involve any other dealing in blocked property or violate any other applicable sanctions regulations. FAU Glavgosekspertiza Rossii remains blocked on the SDN List and dealings with FAU Glavgosekspertiza Rossii remain prohibited unless expressly authorized by OFAC.

Companies doing business in Russia and Ukraine should monitor closely any measures imposed by the United States to ensure compliance. Penalties for noncompliance can be severe.
