WASHINGTON, April 2. /TASS/. The US Department of Commerce has imposed export-related sanctions on 120 Russian and Belarusian organizations, related to defense, aerospace and naval sectors.
A document uploaded to the US Federal Register says those organizations were determined to be "acting contrary to the national security interests or foreign policy of the United States."
Those entities were added to the sanctions list "for acquiring and attempting to acquire items subject to the EAR [Export Administration Regulations] in support of Russia’s military modernization efforts."
The move means that those organizations will no longer have a chance to obtain advanced US technologies without a license. License applications will be reviewed under the policy of denial, the document says.
Among the 96 Russian organizations added to the list are shipbuilder Sevmash (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation), 46th TSNII Central Scientific Research Institute of the Russian Defense Ministry, the Institute of High Energy Physics, the Alikhanov Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Physics, the Pella Shipyard, the Zhukovsky Central Aerohydrodynamics Institute and 35 enterprises of the Tactical Missile Corporation.
