This Friday, the US government sanctioned 34 new companies both for facilitating exports between Russia and Iran and for allegedly collaborating with abuses against the Uyghur Muslim minority in China. This was made public by the Department of Commerce in a statement.

The measure prohibits American companies from exporting or transferring goods to organizations on the Commerce Department’s Entity List.

“These thirty-four entities have been determined by the U.S. Government to be acting contrary to the foreign policy interests of the United States and will be listed on the Entity List under the destinations of Canada; People’s Republic of China (China); Iran; Lebanon; Netherlands (The Netherlands); Pakistan; Russia; Singapore; South Korea; Taiwan; Turkey; the United Arab Emirates (UAE); and the United Kingdom.,” the statement reads.

Of the sanctioned companies, 14 are complicit “in Beijing’s campaign of repression, mass detention and state-of-the-art surveillance of Uighurs, Kazakhs and members of other Muslim minority groups in Xinjiang.”
