Under the blow hit the defense sector.
The United States remains true to its principles and reward Russia with new sanctions, writes for “the spectator” Ukrainian blogger “the Angry inhabitant of Odessa”.
So, the other day, the U.S. state Department cheered a number of the enterprises of the Russian defense sector by entering to the “lucky list”, namely, the plant “Avangard”, which produces missiles for s-300 and s-400 and “instrument Design Bureau” develops “high-precision” weapons, in particular for zrpk “Carapace-C1”.
Sanctions were imposed in connection with the violation by Russia of the law on the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (INKSNA), which prohibit supply of military equipment, ballistic missiles, components for their production in such rogue States as Syria, Iran and North Korea. In turn, Russia, as you know, these deliveries were carried out, and even openly used for propaganda purposes.
Thanks to these sanctions in the near future problems with the export of products of the mentioned enterprises will arise not only from Russian side but also from countries that either will have to get the mentioned weapons, or plan to order ammo and items to them.
But that being said, not all. Since March, the White house is considering a second round of sanctions against Russia in the case of the poisoning of ex-GRU Colonel Sergei Skripal and his daughter. This document is much more interesting and three-dimensional, because it includes constraints the export and import of Russian products, the activities of financial institutions of the Russian Federation and even flights between the two countries.
