According to a statement from the Treasury, the Executive established this battery of new punishments against two people and two entities linked to a company that had been sanctioned in June.

Washington.- The United States Government has established new sanctions against Russian actors for allegedly trying to avoid punishments in June for entities and individuals for the “malicious” cybernetic activities of the Kremlin.

According to a statement from the Treasury, the Executive established this battery of new punishments against two people and two entities linked to a company that had been sanctioned in June in the framework of other impositions for trying to improve the resources of the Moscow Intelligence, Efe reported. .
“The Treasury Department is ending the efforts of Russia to avoid our sanctions,” said the head of this portfolio, Steven Mnuchin, in a statement in which he explained that they are essential for these “actors to remain blocked from the US financial system. “
Based on the new effects, the four will be blocked all the properties “or interests in properties” that are under the jurisdiction of the North American country and, “in general”, can not establish transactions with Americans.
According to the story outlined by the Government, these entities and individuals are linked to Divetechnoservices , a company that was sanctioned in June for having provided dive systems to the Russian Intelligence, in an attempt to continue acting while fleeing the fixed corrective measures.
The organizations Vela-Marine Ltd. (based in Russia) and Lacno SRO (based in Slovakia) tried in July and April, respectively, to work for Divetechnoservices so that it could continue to access the necessary resources.
On the other hand, Marina Igorevna Tsareva and Anton Aleksandrovich Nagibin were also sanctioned, as they had previously worked for the company punished in June and were now seeking alternative methods to escape US Treasury taxation.
These new corrections, like those of June, are framed in actions that seek to “block the ownership of certain people involved in significant malicious cyber activity” and in the Law to Combat US Adversaries through Sanctions, according to the statement .
In this way, the actions of Divetechnoservices for the FSB (acronyms of the Russian Intelligence Service, former KGB) were in a context of improving the Kremlin’s computing capabilities.
On June 11, the Treasury imposed sanctions against five entities and three Russian citizens, including Divetechnoservices. http://www.eluniversal.com/internacional/18349/eeuu-impone-nuevas-sanciones-contra-actividades-ciberneticas-rusas
