On July 17, the US adopted the third package of anti-Russian sanctions amid the situation in Ukraine. New prohibitive measures affected economic sectors; the black list included state-owned Vnesheconombank, Gazprombank, Rosneft oil company, Kalashnikov weapon concern, machine building company Uralvagonzavod, NOVATEK gas company and others. In contrast to the previous two sanction waves, the banks’ freedom was only restricted in that they can now borrow funds on foreign markets for no more than 90 days.
On Monday, Wall Street Journal reported with a reference to EU diplomatic sources Brussels discussed expansion of the Russian sanction list with two more companies and five individuals.
