The US introduced new sanctions against Russia: a list of people and companies
Washington imposed sanctions against three Russians and five companies associated with entrepreneur Yevgeny Prigozhin, writes «РИА Новости».
A report by the US Treasury Department’s Foreign Assets Control Office said that restrictions would apply to organizations in Sudan, Hong Kong, and Thailand, which supposedly helped Prigogine evade previous sanctions. The United States also accused these structures of trying to “suppress and discredit protesters for democratic reforms in Sudan.”
The sanctions included the Russians Igor Lavrenkov and Mikhail Potepkin, Andrey Mandel (citizenship not indicated), as well as the company M Invest LLC, associated with it Meroe Gold Co. Ltd, Shen Yang Jing Cheng Machinery Imp & Exp. Co., Limited, Shine Dragon Group Limited and Zhe Jiang Jiayi Small Commodities Trade Company Limited.
Washington claims that some of these organizations helped make more than a hundred transfers worth more than $ 7,5 million, "sent in the interests of Prigogine."
Igor Lavrenkov, who headed the Shine Dragon Group Limited, was “personally involved in establishing a relationship with the company M Invest, which allegedly“ developed plans for the former president of Sudan, Omar Al-Bashir, to suppress the protests, ”the report said.
Earlier, the US authorities closed the case against the two companies of Prigogine, prosecutors came up with such an initiative just a few weeks before the start of the process. Then the businessman was accused of involvement in "interference" in the US election. It was noted that the publication of the evidence base could only reveal the methods of American law enforcement agencies, but de facto would not help bring the Russians to justice.
Concord Management lawyer Eric Dubelier regarded this as a victory, and the businessman himself asked the Attorney General William Barr to resume the case against his company so that he could publicly prove his innocence.
