Due to their support for the Russian Army, an Iranian electronics company, and Pakistan’s nuclear program, the US has blacklisted about 24 businesses and other organizations.
According to the US Commerce Department, the businesses are based in Russia, Pakistan, Latvia, Switzerland, and Singapore and have been put on an export control list due to policy and national security considerations.
Approximately 10 companies from Pakistan and the UAE have reportedly been added to the list as a result of their participation in Pakistan’s proliferation of nuclear and missile-related activities.
Additionally, two of the 24 companies participating are Fiber Optic Solutions in Latvia, which produces fibre optic gyroscopes and other equipment, and AO Kraftway Corporation PSC in Russia, which calls itself one of the major Russian IT companies.
Additionally, the list also includes the Swiss-based Milur SA and the Russian AO Scientific Research Center for Electronic Computing, LLC Fibersense, Scientific Production Company Optolin, AO PKK Milandr, Milandr EK, Milandr ICC JSC, Milur IS, Microelectronic Production Complex (MPK) Milandr, and Ruselectronics JSC.
In addition, the US Treasury sanctioned Pardazan System Namad Arman (PASNA), an Iranian electronics company, in 2018.
As a result of their involvement in providing equipment to PASNA, the Commerce Department has blacklisted four Singapore-based trading and supply companies.
It is important to note that since Moscow invaded Ukraine in February of this year, the US has strictly banned businesses with ties to the Russian military.
