russian-flag-1168889_640.jpgThe Federal government announced more sanctions last week against a Russian Federation financier already in its crosshairs for his alleged support of crackdowns against democracy protests in Sudan.

On Wednesday, the Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) revealed the new sanctions, which target entities related to the Russian financier located in Sudan, Hong Kong, and Thailand. OFAC says these targeted entities has helped him evade sanctions placed upon him previously.

Per OFAC, the Russian financier of a Russian troll farm designated by them in 2018. He's also alleged to be the operator of a Russian Ministry of Defense proxy force, which is also under designation. The Office says that the activities by both entities has harvested unrest and violence in many places, including Ukraine, Syria, Sudan, and Libya.

The sanctions specifically target three individuals and five entities for their relationship with the Russian financier. Two men, one 39 years of age and the other 30 years, are Russian nationals, while the third is 46 years of age and is a Saint Kitts and Nevis national. Three of the entities designated are based in Hong Kong, one is in Khartoum, and one is in St. Petersburg, Russia. The parties sanctioned last week are a few of several alleged to be involved in assisting the Russian financier to evade global sanctions.
