Taking Additional Sweeping Measures Against Russia
PRESS STATEMENT BY ANTONY J. BLINKEN, SECRETARY OF STATE
3 MINUTE READ
November 2, 2023

Today, the United States is imposing further sanctions on over 200 individuals and entities in connection with Russia’s war against Ukraine.

The Department of State is imposing sanctions on over 90 entities and individuals engaged in sanctions evasion and those complicit in furthering Russia’s ability to wage its war against Ukraine. Our actions today also target Russia’s future energy capabilities, which will limit Moscow’s ability to funnel future revenues toward its destructive aims.

Concurrently, the Department of the Treasury is imposing further sanctions on multiple networks used by Russia to circumvent our existing sanctions. The Treasury Department is also designating key manufacturing and other firms supporting Russia’s industrial base, as well as additional Russian financial institutions. The Department of Commerce is also adding thirteen names to the Entity List.

The United States and its allies and partners are united in our continued support of Ukraine. We will continue to use the tools at our disposal to raise the cost for Russia of waging this war and promote accountability for its atrocities and abuses in Ukraine.

For more information on today’s action, please see the Department of State’s fact sheet, the Department of the Treasury’s press release, and the Department of Commerce’s press release.
