State Department Updates the Cuba Restricted List
Office of the Spokesperson
The State Department has made several updates to the Cuba Restricted List, including adding five sub-entities owned by the Cuban military and one explanatory footnote. The Department also simplified some entries by removing references to parent companies. The changes take effect Tuesday, March 12, 2019.
The Cuba Restricted List contains entities and sub-entities controlled by the Cuban military, intelligence, and security services or personnel. In accordance with the June 2017 National Security Presidential Memorandum-5, “
These additions to the Cuba Restricted List occur as the Cuban government further consolidated the regime’s one-party dictatorship through a flawed, undemocratic constitutional referendum on February 24. We also denounce Cuba’s role in propping the failed regime of former Venezuelan president, Nicolás Maduro. Cuban military and security forces have abetted Maduro in his quest to remain in power, contributing to the Venezuelan crisis, human rights abuses against Venezuelans, and to the untold suffering of the Venezuelan people.

As noted before, the State Department maintains each version of the Cuba Restricted List on its website, rather than a single consolidated list – and doesn’t publish the list of updates (i.e. like OFAC does)…
