Further designations pursuant to Executive Order 13661

The US has designated 20 individuals (mainly Russian) and 1 entity - BANK ROSSIYA (f.k.a. AKTSIONERNY BANK RUSSIAN FEDERATION) pursuant to EO 13661 which was issued on 17 March 2014 as a response to the deployment of Russian Federation military forces in the Crimea region of Ukraine, and other action and policies which are said to undermine democratic processes and institutions in Ukraine, threaten its peace, security, stability, sovereignty, and territorial integrity, and contribute to the misappropriation of its assets.

Bank Rossiya is reported to be the 5th largest bank in Russia.  As an SDN, any US dollar transactions to or through this bank would now be blocked.
