No.  OFAC has not designated Norilsk Nickel and, based on information available to OFAC as of December 15, 2022, Norilsk Nickel is not owned 50% or more by blocked persons or otherwise considered the blocked property of Vladimir Potanin.

1103. Is there a wind-down period for transactions involving Public Joint Stock Company Rosbank (Rosbank), which was blocked on December 15, 2022 pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 14024?  What transactions are authorized during the wind-down period?

OFAC issued General Licenses (GL) 58 and 59 concurrent with the designation of Rosbank.  GL 58 authorizes a wind-down period for transactions involving Rosbank or any entity in which Rosbank owns, directly or indirectly, a 50 percent or greater interest (“Rosbank entities”) until 12:01 a.m. eastern daylight time, March 15, 2023.  This includes transactions ordinarily incident and necessary to exit operations, contracts, or other agreements involving Rosbank entities that were in effect prior to December 15, 2022, provided that such transactions do not involve a debit to a blocked account on the books of a U.S. financial institution (see Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) 990).  Wind-down activities covered by GL 58 do not include the continued processing of funds transfers, securities trades, or other transactions that involve a Rosbank entity that were part of ongoing business activities prior to the imposition of sanctions, unless separately authorized (see, e.g., GLs 6B8E, or 59).

In addition, GL 58 authorizes U.S. persons, including U.S. financial institutions, to reject, rather than block, all transactions ordinarily incident and necessary to the processing of funds involving one or more Rosbank entities as an originating, intermediary, or beneficiary financial institution, through 12:01 a.m. eastern daylight time, March 15, 2023.  For individuals holding accounts at Rosbank entities, see FAQ 1080 for guidance, including GL 50, which authorizes individuals to engage in all transactions ordinarily incident and necessary to close their individual accounts held at a financial institution blocked pursuant to E.O. 14024.

GL 59 authorizes U.S. persons to divest or transfer holdings in securities of Rosbank entities to non-U.S. persons, as well as the wind down of certain derivative contracts, subject to certain conditions.  Please see GL 59 for additional details.

Released on 12/15/2022

OFAC Frequently Asked Questions 1103 & 1104

Note: Read GL 58 & 59 carefully… for example, GL 58 allows payments to a 50 Percent Rule entity of Rosbank to proceed only if the funds end up in a blocked account. Similarly, GL 59 allows wind-down transactions, and settlement of trades already placed but not cleared…

Treasury Further Constrains Russia’s Financial Services Sector

December 15, 2022

Sanctions Increase Pressure on Two Prominent Financial Institutions in Russia

WASHINGTON – Today, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is adding 18 entities related to the Russian Federation’s financial services sector to the Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List (SDN List). These designations, taken along with the Department of State, which is concurrently designating a prominent oligarch in Russia, his network, and more than 40 additional persons linked to the Government of the Russian Federal (GoR), are part of the U.S. government’s efforts to further limit the GoR’s ability to fund its unconscionable war of choice against Ukraine. Today’s actions also broadly complement those of our international partners.

Since the start of Russia’s brutal full-scale invasion in February 2022, Treasury has taken unprecedented action to isolate Russia from the global financial system, with severe short- and long-term effects on its economy. Russia’s economy is expected to contract this year and continue contracting in 2023; beyond that, lost investment, export controls, and constraints on Russia’s real economy will inhibit Russia’s growth prospects for years to come. Banking sanctions also undercut financing for import replacement goals and imports of key components. As such, Russia has had to increase reliance on its international reserves for defense industry support and production, as well as to cushion the war’s impact on the public.

“By sanctioning additional major Russian banks, we continue to deepen Russia’s isolation from global markets,” said Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Brian E. Nelson. “Today’s designations by the United States, together with actions taken by  our international partners, will further inhibit the Putin regime’s ability to fund its horrific war against Ukraine.”

TARGETING ENTITIES IN RUSSIA’S FINANCIAL SERVICES SECTOR

Together with the U.S. Department of State’s designation of one of Russia’s richest men, Vladimir Potanin (Potanin), and associated persons, OFAC designated Public Joint Stock Company Rosbank (Rosbank), a Russia-based commercial bank that Potanin acquired earlier this year. The Central Bank of the Russian Federation considers Rosbank to be a systemically important credit institution to the GoR. The United Kingdom and Canada designated Rosbank earlier this year.

Rosbank was designated pursuant to Executive Order (E.O) 14024 for operating or having operated in the financial services sector of the Russian Federation economy. In conjunction with this action, Treasury has issued Russia-related General License (GL) 58, authorizing all transactions that are ordinarily incident and necessary to the wind down of transactions involving Rosbank, or any entity in which Rosbank owns, directly or indirectly, a 50 percent or greater interest, through 12:01 a.m. eastern daylight time, March 15, 2023. In addition, Treasury has issued Russia-related GL 59, authorizing the wind down of certain securities and derivatives transactions through 12:01 a.m. eastern daylight time, March 15, 2023. Treasury also issued amended GL 8E, adding Rosbank to the authorization, which allows certain blocked financial institutions to process energy-related transactions. Since the start of the war, OFAC has issued broad GLs to authorize certain transactions related to agricultural commodities, agricultural equipment, medicine, and medical devices, as well as transactions related to energy.

OFAC is also adding 17 subsidiaries of VTB Bank Public Joint Stock Company (VTB Bank), Russia’s second largest bank, to the SDN List. VTB Bank was designated in February 2022 and all entities owned 50 percent or more, directly or indirectly, by VTB Bank are blocked by operation of law pursuant to E.O. 14024, even if not designated by OFAC. Today’s action identifying additional subsidiaries of VTB Bank helps strengthen compliance with existing sanctions. These VTB Bank subsidiaries were designated pursuant to E.O. 14024 for being owned or controlled by, or for acting or purporting to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, VTB Bank, the property and interests in property of which are blocked pursuant to E.O. 14024. The 17 entities are:

  • Aktsionernoe Obshchestvo SG-Development, a Russia-based entity engaged in real estate activities.
  • Embassy Development Limited, a United Kingdom-based entity engaged in financial activities.
  • Estate Management Company Limited, a Russia-based entity engaged in real estate activities.
  • ITC Consultants Cyprus Limited, a Cyprus-based entity engaged in management consulting services.
  • Joint Stock Company Citybike, a Russia-based travel and personal leisure company that rents consumer goods.
  • Joint Stock Company VTB Development, a Russia-based entity engaged in business and management consulting services.
  • Kordex Joint Stock Company, a Russia-based entity engaged in business and management consultancy activities.
  • Limited Liability Company VTB Commercial Finance, a Russia-based financial institution.
  • Limited Liability Company VTB Infrastructure Investments, a Russia-based entity engaged in business support service activities.
  • Megacom Limited Liability Company, a Russia-based entity engaged in the construction of buildings.
  • Obshchestvo S Ogranichennoi Otvetstvennostyu Dolgovoi Tsentr, a Russia-based entity engaged in business support service activities.
  • Obshchestvo S Ogranichennoi Otvetstvennostyu Proekt, a Russia-based entity engaged in real estate activities.
  • Obshchestvo S Ogranichennoi Otvetstvennostyu VTB Syryevye Tovary Kholding, a Russia-based entity engaged in non-specialized wholesale trade.
  • Ryabinovaya OOO, a Russia-based entity engaged in real estate activities.
  • VB-Service Company Limited, a Russia-based entity engaged in real estate activities.
  • VTB Leasing Joint Stock Company, a Russia-based entity engaged in financial leasing.
  • VTB Real Estate Limited Liability Company, a Russia-based entity engaged in real estate activities.

SANCTIONS IMPLICATIONS

As a result of today’s action, all property and interests in property of the individuals above that are in the United States or in the possession or control of U.S. persons are blocked and must be reported to OFAC. In addition, any entities that are owned, directly or indirectly, 50 percent or more by one or more blocked persons are also blocked. All transactions by U.S. persons or within (or transiting) the United States that involve any property or interests in property of designated or blocked persons are prohibited unless authorized by a general or specific license issued by OFAC, or exempt. These prohibitions include the making of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services by, to, or for the benefit of any blocked person and the receipt of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services from any such person.

The power and integrity of OFAC sanctions derive not only from OFAC’s ability to designate and add persons to the SDN List, but also from its willingness to remove persons from the SDN List consistent with the law. The ultimate goal of sanctions is not to punish, but to bring about a positive change in behavior. For information concerning the process for seeking removal from an OFAC list, including the SDN List, please refer to OFAC’s Frequently Asked Question 897. Detailed information on the process to submit a request for removal from an OFAC sanctions list.
