The U.S. will restrict the import of firearms from Russia and the export of technologies to the country

Washington noted that restrictions are introduced based on the law on the control of chemical and biological weapons and the prohibition of their military use.

Due to the incident with Alexey Navalny, the U.S. authorities are introducing new restrictions on the import of firearms and ammunition from Russia and the export of products and technologies related to the missile and nuclear spheres to the Russian Federation. This is stated in a statement issued on Friday by the head of the press service of the Department of State, Ned Price.

As noted in the document, these restrictions are introduced based on the law on the control of chemical and biological weapons and the prohibition of their military use. Among them are “restrictions on the permanent import of certain types of Russian firearms.” “A refusal policy will be applied to new and pending applications for permanent import of firearms and ammunition manufactured or located in Russia,” the Department of State said.

In addition, the U.S. Department of Commerce “introduces additional export restrictions on products and technologies related to the missile and nuclear spheres.” As follows from the document, the restrictions will come into force on September 7 and will be valid for “at least 12 months.”
