As reported in the Ministry of Finance of the United States, strict limits will be introduced in a month, from November 28, the conditions of financing of the Russian companies under sanctions from the side of American legal or natural persons, as well as with the United States. For such Russian companies from the energy sector the period for which they can be granted credits will be reduced to 60 days from the current 90, and for pidsanktsiynyh companies from the financial sector to 14 days from the current 30.

This act was part of a broader legislative package that imposed sanctions against Iran and North Korea.
The U.S., like other countries of the group of seven and some States as well as EU coordinated imposed after the aggression of Russia against Ukraine – first in Crimea, then Donbas – several packages of sanctions, in particular, individuals and legal entities of Russia and occupied Crimea, Donbass and the Crimean separatists and representatives of the former Ukrainian government.
