The US is planning blacklisting sanctions against companies that are Russia's partners. Enterprises supporting Moscow will be banned from purchasing American goods and technologies, which, among other things, will close access to such strategically important products as semiconductors, follows from a statement on the White House website.
Also, US agencies are preparing blocking sanctions against individuals who are associated with Russia's attempts to circumvent existing restrictions, the report said. Washington will also ask financial institutions to get involved in the search for export control violations.
