The US second package of sanctions against the Russian Federation has come into effect on August 26. The sanctions are related to the poisoning of ex-GRU officer Sergey Skripal and his daughter Yulia. The document is prepared by the U.S. Ministry of Finance and published on the official website of the American Federal Register, as Deutsche Welle reports. 

The new anti-Russian sanctions will last at least 12 months. 

Within these restrictive measures, Washington urged international financial organizations not to provide and extend loans for Moscow, financial and technical support. 

Sanctions apply to license for the export of goods and technologies, which are under control of the USA Department of Commerce and within the fight with the proliferation of chemical and biological weapons. 

The White House believes such measures will restrict Russia from billion income got from bilateral trade with the USA. 

The government has also prohibited American banks to participate in the sale of sovereign non-ruble debts and provide non-ruble credits to the Kremlin.
