USA authorities hit three Russians and five companies with new sanctions, targeting a cyberresearch company and one that specializes in providing underwater diving equipment to Russia's lead security agency, the FSB.
"The entities designated today have directly contributed to improving Russia's cyber and underwater capabilities through their work with the FSB and therefore jeopardize the safety and security of the United States and our allies", Steven Mnuchin, Treasury Secretary, said.
The sanctions issued by the US Treasury department freeze any properties the Russian entities own in US jurisdiction and prohibit American citizens from doing business with them.
The Treasury Department said it was imposing sanctions on five Russian firms and three of their executives under legislation passed a year ago and an executive order aimed at punishing efforts to hack into US computer systems. Divetechnoservices, one of the sanctioned firms, was awarded a contract to procure a submarine for the FSB, according to Treasury. These sanctions also target Russia's tracking of underwater communications in order to eavesdrop on world wide communications.
