Designating Belarusian Networks – United States Department of State

The United States is today designating one entity and five individuals for facilitating sanctions evasion for a major Belarusian defense enterprise; six revenue generating state-owned enterprises; and five entities and five individuals involved in a global arms network connected to a U.S.-designated Belarusian defense firm.

Today’s action builds on sanctions imposed by the United States in response to the fraudulent August 2020 election and for President Alyaksandr Lukashenka’s support for Russia’s illegal full-scale invasion of Ukraine.  We will continue to work with our partners and allies to expose sanctions evasion, halt illicit arms trafficking worldwide, and impose costs on those who support Russia’s brutal war against Ukraine and profiteering from it.

The Department of the Treasury designations were taken pursuant to Executive Order 14038, “Blocking Property of Additional Persons Contributing to the Situation in Belarus.”  For more information on today’s action, see Treasury’s press release.
