On April 11, 2014, the US Office of Foreign Assets Control ("OFAC") issued further designations under Executive Order 13660 ("EO 13660"). EO 13360, which was signed on March 6, 2014, authorizes the United States to impose sanctions on certain persons if they are found to have engaged in certain actions or policies that contribute to the situation in Ukraine. This round of designations targets six Crimean separatist leaders, one former Ukrainian official, and one entity that is a Crimea-based oil and gas company.

The additional individuals designated on April 11, 2014 are:

Chernomorneftgaz, the sole entity blocked under today’s actions, is an offshore oil and gas production company based in Crimea. OFAC has specifically indicated that this designation refers only to the entity in Crimea at the address listed, and does not include its parent company.

All property and interests in property of these individuals and entity within the possession or control of a US Person1 are considered blocked and may not be dealt in. Any entity in which a blocked party holds a 50% or greater ownership interest is itself considered blocked by operation of law. US Persons may not engage in any dealings, directly or indirectly, with designated parties.

More information about EO 13660 can be found here. This EO has been complemented by two other Executive Orders, 13661 and 13662, as well as a bill signed into law by the President on April 3, 2014.

Companies doing business in Russia and Ukraine should monitor closely any measures imposed by the United States to ensure compliance. Penalties for noncompliance are severe. We will continue to track and report on these sanctions developments.
