Ukraine-related Executive Orders and Designations
The U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has announced its designation of four individuals — Crimea-based separatist leaders Sergey Aksyonov and Vladimir Konstantinov, leader of Ukranian Choice Viktor Medvedchuk, and former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych — under March 10, 2014, Executive Order 13660 ("Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Ukraine"). Aksyonov, Konstantinov, Medvedchuk, and Yanukovych are being designated for their role in actions or policies that threaten the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine. They are also being designated for their role in actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine. Medvedchuk is also being designated because he has materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support to Yanukovych and because he is a leader of an entity that has, or whose members have, engaged in actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine and actions or policies that threaten the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine. As a result of this action, any assets of the persons designated today that are within U.S. jurisdiction must be frozen. Additionally, U.S. persons are generally prohibited from conducting any transactions with these four individuals.
OFAC has also posted an announcement that President Obama has signed a subsequent Executive Order "Blocking Property of Additional Persons Contributing to the Situation In Ukraine," which expands upon EO 13660 to provide the ability to target officials of the Government of the Russian Federation, any individuals or entities that operate in the arms or related materiel sector in the Russian Federation, and any individual or entity that is owned or controlled by, or provides material or other support to any senior official of the Government of the Russian Federation or any person designated pursuant to the latter order.
