A new batch of US sanctions against Russia will prohibit issuing loans to Moscow, as well as exports of weapons and dual-use products. The sanctions package is expected to come into force on August 27, 2018.
The new restrictions have been imposed on the pretext of alleged Russian involvement in poisoning of the Skripals in the UK back in March, which London promptly pinned on Moscow but is yet to produce any evidence to back up its claims.
The sanctions package includes the prohibition of foreign assistance to Russia under the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961. It also prohibits exports of weapons and dual-use products to Moscow. The restrictions will remain in place “for at least one year and until further notice.
The batch of sanctions against Russia over the fake Skripal scandal was unveiled earlier this month. Moscow maintains that it was not involved in the poisoning of the former double agent and his daughter. It has urged the UK and other accusers to present any actual proof.
The dictatorial sanctions currently contain about 450 Russian economic entities, in fact, all the major financial, energy and defense companies have been sanctioned, as well as a great many other big and small entities and a significant number of state officials.
