The United States imposed sanctions on Wednesday on at least four entities based in Turkey, saying they violate US export controls and provide aid to Russia’s war effort.
The sanctions, which include an electronics company based in Turkey and an e-commerce company believed to help transport dual-use goods, are part of an international sanctions package announced by the US Treasury that includes more than 120 entities.
An administration official said the sanctions targeted entities based in Turkey that are “primarily” owned or linked to Russia, and people in the commercial and maritime sectors.
And the Russian “TASS” agency reported that the US Treasury Department imposed sanctions today, Wednesday, on Russian Deputy Prime Minister Marat Hasanulin, the Russian national military movement “Unarmia”, in addition to the “Megaphone” communications company.
The US sanctions list also included citizens and companies from Hungary and Cyprus, all of which are related to providing support to Russia in its war against Ukraine.
