Publication of Ukraine-/Russia-related CAATSA Guidance.

​Today, in accordance with section 223(d) of Title II of the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is issuing amended Ukraine-/Russia-Related Directive 4.  Certain CAATSA-related prohibitions in amended Directive 4 have a delayed effective date of January 29, 2018.  OFAC is also publishing new and updated FAQs relating to the amended Directive.

Additionally, OFAC is publishing new FAQs related to CAATSA sections 223(a), 226, 228, and 233.  These FAQs are the latest OFAC actions to implement the responsibilities assigned and delegated to it under CAATSA.  They reflect close interagency consultation and coordination, as well as careful consideration of issues raised by Congress, industry, and international allies and partners.
