The Department of Commerce has expanded the scope of the EAR’s Russian and Belarusian Industry Sector Sanctions by expanding the foreign direct product rule that currently applies to Russia and Belarus to apply to the temporarily occupied Crimea region of Ukraine as well. Additionally, BIS revises recent restrictions targeting Iran’s supply of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to Russia. This rule also refines existing export controls on Russia and Belarus.
