Japan adds 81 persons, 9 entities to anti-Russian sanction lists

TOKYO.Oct 7 (Interfax) - Japan has expanded the lists of anti-Russian sanctions with 81 persons and nine entities, the Japanese Finance Ministry said in a statement on Friday.

For instance, the restrictions will now apply to Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev, Chechnya head Ramzan Kadyrov, and officers from the Russia Aerospace Forces and the Russian National Guard.

According to the statement, 23 persons fall under sanctions because of their involvement in the entry of new regions into Russia. These include member of the Main Council of the Zaporozhye regional administration Vladimir Rogov and chairman of the government of the Kherson regional military-civilian administration Sergei Yeliseyev.

The sanctions were also imposed on the Rostec state corporation, the Roselectronics holding, Kalashnikov Group, ODK Klimov, the More shipyard, Sozvezdie, United Engine Corporation, and the Yantar shipyard.

Japan imposed sanctions on Russia for the last time in late September. Back then, Tokyo listed 21 Russian companies and banned the exports of "chemical weapons-related" goods to Russia, as the Japanese Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The sanctions apply to the 46th Central Research Institute of the Russian Defense Ministry, Moselektronproyekt, NPO Etalon, Mashpriborintorg, and Energia.
