On 20 June, the US Treasury Department designated seven Ukrainian individuals pursuant to Executive Order 13660, which authorises sanctions on persons that threaten the peace, security, stability, sovereignty or territorial integrity of Ukraine, or that assert governmental authority without authorisation. The following persons, all described by the Treasury Department as “separatists,” are now subject to blocking sanctions: Viacheslav Ponomariov (also designated by the EU and Canada), Denis Pushilin, Andrey Yevgenyevich Purgin (also designated by the EU), Igor Vsevolodovich Girkin, Valery Bolotov (also designated by the EU), Sergei Ivanovich Menyailo (also designated by the EU) and Valery Vladimirovich Kaurov. All property of these individuals that is in or comes into the possession of a US person must be blocked, effectively prohibiting transactions with these individuals by US persons.
