США ввели очередные санкции против российских компаний

"Russia can't be allowed to edit and obstruct independent United Nations reports on North Korea sanctions just because they don't like what they say".

The Treasury Department said that it blacklisted Russia-based company Volasys Silver Star, China-based China Silver Star and its CEO Jong Song Hwa for violating USA sanctions.

"This is a unsafe precedent and a stain on the important work of the panel", Haley said, calling for the initial version of the report - dating from early August - to be published.

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley expressed disappointment in the panel monitoring sanctions against North Korea "for caving to Russian pressure and making changes to what should have been an independent report".

The Trump administration has sought to ramp up pressure on Kim to strike a deal to halt North Korea's nuclear program in part by penalizing Chinese and Russian firms that the increasingly isolated country depends on to keep its economy afloat.

The dispute between Russian Federation and the U.S as well as Western and other Security Council members has delayed the official release of the six-month report by the expert panel monitoring sanctions against North Korea.

The U.N. Security Council will meet on Monday over the implementation of sanctions on North Korea at the request of Washington, the USA mission to the United Nations said.

Ken Graham, the NHC's director, warned the slow pace of the storm exacerbated its danger even to areas outside its immediate path. Airlines canceled about 1,200 flights and counting, and some airports in the Carolinas virtually shut down.


The Treasury said it is sanctioning China Silver Star, which is "nominally a Chinese IT company, but in reality. managed and controlled by North Koreans".

More sanctions slapped on entities that allegedly had a hand in helped North Korea develop nuclear weapons.

In its original report the United Nations panel included the names of Russian ships and entities that had contravened United Nations sanctions, opening the way for worldwide measures against them.

At the end of August, Russia blocked publication of the report because it disagreed with findings that Pyongyang had exceeded a 2018 import limit for oil set by the sanctions imposed in 2017, the diplomat said. The Security Council has to agree by consensus on whether to publish the report and the United States objected to releasing the amended document.

"This is a unsafe precedent and a stain on the important work of the Panel", Haley said, calling for the initial version of the report - dating from early August - to be published.

The diplomat added: "The sanctions committee gave in".
