“Russia is making increasingly desperate choices to continue its unprovoked war against Ukraine, particularly in the face of our unprecedented sanctions and export controls.”
The United States will strictly enforce its sanctions against Russia and Iran, and hold Iran and others responsible for supporting Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.
“We will also not hesitate to target producers and procurers who contribute to Iran and its IRGC’s UAV program, further demonstrating our resolve to continue going after terrorist proxies that destabilize the Middle East. Non-Iranian, non-Russian entities should also exercise great caution to avoid supporting either the development of Iranian UAVs or their transfer or sale of any military equipment to Russia for use against Ukraine.”
The US Treasury Department said in a statement that it had blacklisted Safiran Airport Services, based in Tehran, accusing it of coordinating Russian military flights between Iran and Russia, including those involving the transportation of drones, personnel and related equipment.
The US Treasury Department also sanctioned Paravar Pars Company, Design and Manufacturing of Aircraft Engines and Baharestan Kish Company, accusing them of involvement in the research, development, production and procurement of Iranian drones.
