 ​Issuance of Ukraine-/Russia-related General Licenses; Publication of New FAQs and Updated FAQs

Today, the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is issuing Ukraine-/Russia-related General License 15.  General License 15 authorizes U.S. persons to engage in specified transactions related to winding down or maintaining business with GAZ Group and its subsidiaries until October 23, 2018.  OFAC is also issuing Ukraine-/Russia-related General License 12C, which replaces and supersedes General License 12B in its entirety.  General License 12C permits originating and intermediary U.S. financial institutions to process funds transfers that they would otherwise block to an account held by a blocked U.S. person at a U.S. financial institution.  In addition, General License 12C clarifies that U.S. financial institutions can release such funds for authorized maintenance and wind-down purposes.  OFAC is also publishing six new Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and revisions to existing FAQs about these general licenses.
