The US will impose sanctions on a NATO country that helps Russia

US President Joe Biden’s administration will impose sanctions on five Turkish companies and one Turkish citizen for helping Russia circumvent existing restrictions.

These are companies that participate in the repair of ships affiliated with the Russian Ministry of Defense and facilitate the transfer of so-called dual-use goods to Moscow in support of the war in Ukraine.

According to Reuters, citing a senior US Treasury official, the companies Margiana Insaat Dis Ticaret and Demirci Bilisim Ticaret Sanayi will be blacklisted. The first made “hundreds of deliveries” to sanctioned Russian entities, supplying them with goods used to produce attack drones. The second sent sensors and measuring instruments to the Russian Federation.

The United States will also impose restrictions on Denkar Ship Construction from providing repair services to sanctioned ships owned by a company linked to the Russian Ministry of Defense.

In addition, the list will include the Turkish shipbuilding company ID Ship Agency and its owner Ilker Dogruyol, as well as CTL Limited, which according to the US acts as an intermediary in the supply of electronic components of American and European origin to Russia. .

US: We have warned Turkey many times

Washington believes that despite repeated warnings, channels for the export of dual-use goods from Turkey and a number of other countries to Russia remain open.

“Over the past 18 months, we have shared our concerns with the Turkish government and private sector about the significant risks of doing business with sanctioned individuals linked to the Russian-led war,” the source told Reuters.

These sanctions will be part of a new, wide-ranging package of measures against Russia, which will impose restrictions on 150 entities.
