to the SDN List for the Ukraine/Russia-related sanctions program. Additionally, the following Sectoral Sanctions Identification (SSI)( List listing was updated to add the Syria sanctions program:

Two new Ukraine/Russia General Licenses were added. General License 12 allows wind-down operationf for current contractual obligations, while #13 gives a 1-month window to divest current securities holdings of 3 of the listed entities.

Two new sets of FAQs were issued – 1 related to today’s changes, and 1 related to CAATSA. I will publish those separately.

The same release also added the following 2 persons to the counter narcotics sanctions program:

LEONE MARTINEZ, Miguel Jose (a.k.a. LEONE, Miguel), Severo Diaz 38, Col. Ladron de Guevara, Guadalajara, Jalisco 44600, Mexico; DOB 16 May 1980; citizen Italy; alt. citizen Venezuela; Website http://www.miguelleone.com; Gender Male; Passport YA1867648 (Italy) (individual) [SDNTK] (Linked To: LOS CUINIS). 
 
PEREZ ALVEAR, Jesus (a.k.a. “Chucho Perez”), Guerrero, Mexico; DOB 12 Nov 1984; POB Distrito Federal, Mexico; nationality Mexico; Gender Male; R.F.C. PEAJ-841112-UD1 (Mexico); C.U.R.P. PEAJ841112HDFRLS06 (Mexico) (individual) [SDNTK] (Linked To: CARTEL DE JALISCO NUEVA GENERACION; Linked To: LOS CUINIS; Linked To: GALLISTICA DIAMANTE). 

As well as this entity: 

GALLISTICA DIAMANTE (a.k.a. GALLISTICA DIAMANTE S.A. DE C.V.; a.k.a. TICKET PREMIER), Aguascalientes, Aguascalientes, Mexico; Quinta Los Pirules Num. Ext. 182, Quinta Los Naranjos, Leon, Guanajuato 37210, Mexico; Website http://www.ticketpremier.mx [SDNTK]. 

and an entity was added to the Syrian sanctions (as well as the two ROSOBORONEKSPORT OAO listings above):

RUSSIAN FINANCIAL CORPORATION (a.k.a. AO RFK-BANK; a.k.a. BANK ROSSISKAYA FINANSOVAYA KORPORATSIYA AKTSIONERNOE OBSHCHESTVO; a.k.a. RFC-BANK; a.k.a. RUSSIAN FINANCIAL CORPORATION BANK JSC), St. George’s Lane, D. 1, p. 1, Moscow 125009, Russia; d. 1 korp, 1 per. Georgievski, Moscow 125009, Russia; SWIFT/BIC RFCBRUMM; alt. SWIFT/BIC 044525257 [SYRIA]. 

Now, a question: why list ROSOBORONEKSPORT on both SSI and SDN lists? Isn’t dealing in the secondary bond market (the primary is clearly verboten) providing benefit to the company?

Second question: why bother adding the Syria tag to the SSI listing? There are no securities restrictions related to the Syrian program. What value does that add? Hmmm???
