UPDATED (7/17/14): Post corrected below to indicate that not every entity on the SSIL is subject to the “new equity” prohibition.
Treasury today announced new Russia/Ukraine sanctions. All the sanctioned entities are listed at the end of this post.
Of particular significance is that today’s sanctions include s new list to check. Yes, that’s right. There’s a brand new list at OFAC, which will be called the Sectoral Sanctions Identifications List. (Try saying that as fast as you can ten times in a row.) And I wonder how long before the acronym, the SSIL, becomes simply the SILLY List.
The four entities on the SSIL are not blocked and all transactions with them by United States persons are not forbidden. Instead, certain specific transactions are not permitted as stated on the list itself, although the precise scope of these restrictions is not carefully defined. The list indicates that U.S. persons and persons in the United States are prohibited from “transacting in, providing financing for, or otherwise dealing in new debt of longer than 90 days maturity” with the listed persons. For some of the entities on the list, the prohibition also extends to dealing in “new equity” for those entities. Needless to say, lawyers in Washington are going to be very busy for quite some time trying to figure out what sorts of transactions constituted “new equity.”
Here are the new listings:
