Restrictions on Exports of EAR-Regulated Goods Added for Russian, Ukrainian Entities
The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued a final rule adding two entities in the Crimea region of Ukraine and eight entities in Russia to the list of entities restricted from receiving U.S. exports of goods controlled under the Export Administration Regulations. BIS is adding these entities for violating international law and fueling the conflict in eastern Ukraine.
For these ten entities there is a license requirement for exports, reexports, or transfers (in-country) of all items subject to the EAR and a license review policy of presumption of denial. The license requirement applies to any transaction in which items are to be exported, reexported, or transferred (in-country) to any of these entities or in which they act as purchaser, intermediate consignee, ultimate consignee, or end-user. In addition, no license exceptions are available for exports, reexports, or transfers (in-country) to these entities.
