US sanctions Russian firm over North Korea missiles — RT World News

The US Treasury Department has imposed sanctions against six North Koreans as well as one Russian national and a Russian company, accusing them of the “proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.”

Washington announced the blacklist on Wednesday, calling it part of “ongoing efforts to counter the DPRK’s weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programs.”

The sanctions target North Korea's “continued use of overseas representatives to illegally procure goods for weapons,” said Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Brian Nelson.

A DPRK national based in Vladivostok, Russia, Choe Myong Hon is accused of providing Russian “telecommunications-related equipment” to the Second Academy of Natural Sciences (SANS), sanctioned by the US in 2010.

Four North Koreans based in China have also been sanctioned for allegedly procuring steel alloys, software, chemicals, and other merchandise in service of Pyongyang’s missile program. They are Sim Kwang Sok and Pyon Kwang Chol in Dalian, as well as Kim Song Hun and Kang Chol Hak in Shenyang.
