State Dept Sanctions 5 Russian Companies for Violation of Multilateral Export Control Law

Department of the statesThe State Department has barred 23 international companies from doing business in the U.S. after the agency found evidence that the organizations defied the Iran, North Korea and Syria Nonproliferation Act, Defense News reported Wednesday.

Matthew Bodner writes the sanctioned businesses include Russian state-owned arms exporter Rosoboronexport, aircraft designer MiG and defense technology firms KBP Instrument Design Bureau, NPO Mishinostroyenia and Katod.

“These entities were sanctioned based on credible information that they have been involved in the transfer or purchase to or from Iran, North Korea or Syria of goods, services or technology… that could make a material contribution to the development of weapons of mass destruction or missile proliferation,” Will Stevens, a spokesman for the U.S. embassy in Moscow, was quoted as saying.

Several other companies on the State Department’s list of sanctioned entities are based in China, the United Arab Emirates and Turkey, the report said.
