The U.S. Department of Commerce has included 45 Russian and 58 Chinese companies in the so-called "blacklist" of companies that are related to the defense sectors of these countries and thus fall under sanctions. The list of companies is published on the department’s website.

The U.S. Government has determined that these companies are ‘military end users’ for purposes of the ‘military end user’ control in the EAR that applies to specified items for exports, reexports, or transfers (in-country) to the China, Russia, and Venezuela when such items are destined for a prohibited ‘military end user’,” the statement said.

It is also noted that this is a non-exhaustive list, and does not imply that other parties not included on the list are exempt from regulatory prohibitions.

As we reported earlier, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has blamed Russia for what is being described as the worst-ever cyber-espionage attack on the U.S. government.

"We can say pretty clearly that it was the Russians that engaged in this activity," he stated.
