“Kozak doesn’t have any assets abroad, and in the US too, and he didn’t have any plans to visit the US,” Dzhus said. “Imposing of personalized sanctions against him was expectable and it didn’t bother him.”
Earlier in the day, the US announced new sanctions against Russia, which Washington accuses of “not moving a finger” to de-escalate tensions in Ukraine since April 17 when the so-called Geneva accords were signed.
The Whites House said in a statement that the sanctions targeted 7 individuals and 17 companies, which the American claim are linked to the Kremlin. The American sanctions affected 3 banking institutions, among others.
US officials say the ostracized individuals will be unable to obtain US entry visas and the assets of all both individuals and corporations subjective to the punitive measures will be frozen.
In addition to this, the US Administration will deny the applications for export licenses for any type of high technologies that “could contribute to Russia’s military capabilities” The licenses that have been issued previously will be revoked, the statement said.
Along with Dmitry Kozak, the new sanction list includes Igor Sechin, the CEO of Russia’s state-controlled oil industry major Rosneft, and Dr. Alexei Pushkov, the chairman of the State Duma foreign policy committee who is also the anchorman of a highly popular political TV show and a news analyst.
