Washington imposed sanctions on Russian national debt


On April 15, 2021, US President Joe Biden signed a decree introducing another package of anti-Russian sanctions for Moscow's “harmful external activities”. 16 Russian citizens and 16 legal entities fell under the restrictive measures for "interfering in the American elections in 2020 and supporting the special services in cyberattacks", diplomats, as well as the state debt of the Russian Federation. This is stated on the website of the White House.


After June 14, 2021, Washington has banned its citizens and companies from buying directly securities (bonds) issued by the Russian Central Bank, the National Welfare Fund (NWF) and the RF Ministry of Finance. These actions increase the existing bans on certain transactions with the Russian public debt, which have been in force since August 2019.

In addition, the United States is expelling 10 employees of the Russian Embassy in Washington from the country. It will undoubtedly reduce chance the imminent return of the Russian ambassador to the "hospitable" American soil.

6 well-known Russian technology companies fell under the sanctions: ERA Military Innovative Technopolis (Anapa, Krasnodar Territory), Pasit JSC, NeoBIT LLC, Scientific Research Institute for the Security of Specialized Computing Devices and Automation, AST JSC (Advanced System Technology) and Positive Technologies (Moscow).

The sanctions list includes four online publications: InfoRos, NewsFront, SouthFront and the Strategic Culture Foundation. They were suspected of "working" for the FSB, GRU and SVR.

They affected the sanctions of journalist Alexander Malkevich, the Foundation for the Protection of National Values, the Association for Free Research and International Cooperation, as well as the International Anti-Crisis Center.

The "network of underground companies" that allegedly serves the interests of the Russian businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin in Africa: "Trans-Logistic", "Alkon" and "Unijet" also fell under the restrictions.

The Americans did not forget to satisfy the endless complaints from Ukraine. The sanctions list included: SIZO No. 1 in Simferopol, Crimean Interior Minister Pavel Karandy, Minister of Property and Land Relations of the Republic of Kazakhstan Larisa Kulinich, Head of the FSB Directorate Leonid Mikhailyuk, Head of the IC Department Vladimir Terentyev and Deputy General Director of Stroygazmontazh Leonid Ryzhenkin. Now they will not be able to travel to the United States.

The property and accounts of these organizations and citizens in the United States will be blocked, and American individuals and companies are prohibited from doing business with them. Moreover, any structures that are directly or indirectly owned or controlled by one of those indicated in the list are also blocked, except for cases permitted by a general or special license.

    Is it not too cruel and inhuman to block the accounts of Detention Center No. 1 in the United States?

    Guys! Hey! Do you want a joke, as always from life?
    In Brazzaville there was an excellent tailor, his entire Soviet colony had bell-bottoms, and he sewed to cover his shoes on the platform. Fast, high quality, inexpensive.
    Once we chatted, he said so - you are white, like the Chinese, all look the same ... wink winked smile

        Call girls don't make history. Revolutions are always made by the middle class, and if he fiercely hates Joe, and those who are richer join him (the middle class), the song of the headless Joe will be sung. plasterers will simply be bought and sent to the barricades

          The romantics conceive every revolution, the zealots carry out, and the inveterate villains take advantage of it.

          Where are those who organized the revolution with Lenin? with an ice ax in the head, threw back their hooves?

      McDonald's is a franchise. Leave your people without work, that's all. The US is neither hot nor cold. The American car industry in Russia is imported very little. And forbid Boeing to work in Russia - half of your fleet will stand idle. So by.

        Theirs will stay with work, instead of McDonald's there will be some kind of Russian appetite, a holy place is never empty, and the Yankees will be left without money ... The Russian Aviation Industry will live without the United States, planes can be sold and bought others ... quantity, both new and old, in the joke and in the Air Force ... The US auto industry in the Russian Federation also exists and the Russian Federation can easily live without it

        Three haha. McDonald's is a franchise. Leave your people out of work, that's all. The US is neither hot nor cold.

        McDonald's sucks. Food is for the weak-minded, and as an employer it is of little use. There, out of 3 cripples running from the microwave to the checkout, they squeeze all the juices out (this is in the plan that many will not be left without work).

        Very little of the American car industry is imported to Russia.

        Because American cars are crap. They cannot even compete with the Chinese and Korean, not to mention the Japanese and Europeans.

        And forbid Boeing to work in Russia

        We will master ours faster.

    Biden declared an emergency in the United States due to the harmful activities of the Russian government

    TO THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS:

    In accordance with the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 USC 1701 et seq.) (IEEPA), I hereby inform you that I have issued a National Emergency Ordinance for an Unusual and Extreme Threat. for the national security, foreign policy and economy of the United States as a result of certain harmful external activities of the Government of the Russian Federation.

    I have determined that the said harmful external activities of the Government of the Russian Federation - in particular, attempts to undermine the conduct of free and fair democratic elections and democratic institutions in the United States and its allies and partners; engage in and facilitate malicious cyber activities against the United States and its allies and partners; encourage and use transnational corruption to influence foreign governments; carry out extraterritorial activities against dissidents or journalists; undermine security in countries and regions important to the national security of the United States; and violate well-established principles of international law, including respect for the territorial integrity of states, represent an unusual and extreme threat to national security, foreign policy, and the US economy.
