Chisinau, 26 October /MOLDPRES/ - The United States Department of the Treasury has imposed sanctions against the former president of the Moldovan Democratic Party (PDM), Vladimir Plahotniuc, and the leader of the Shor Party, Ilan Shor. U.S. Ambassador to Moldova Kent Logsdon made statements to this effect at a news briefing today.        

According to the official, levies will be put on the assets of Vladimir Plahotniuc and Ilan Shor on the territory of the United States and they will be banned from entering the USA. ‘’ The United States Department of the Treasury has announced sanctions against two Moldovan oligarchs, Vladimir Plahotniuc and Ilan Shor, as well as more entities and people associated to them for actions dealing with systemic corruption and interference with elections. The inclusion in the list of the sanctioned persons means that any assets owned by Vladimir Plahotniuc and Ilan Shor, which are in the USA, are blocked and must be reported to the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the American Treasury. The United States shows once again that it is with you in fighting corruption,’’ the ambassador said.       

Kent Logsdon stressed that, besides the sanctions imposed, the USA had taken measures to counteract the persistent companies of Russia’s government in Moldova. Thus, sanctions were approved against Russian persons and entities.  

„These sanctions refer to the blocking of any transactions by people in the USA, which regard any properties belonging to the subjects. At the same time, the interdictions concern the carrying out of any contribution or delivery of funds, assets or services for the benefit of the concerned people,’’ the official noted.

The United States Department of the Treasury took the decision on imposing sanctions today evening.
