Several Kazakhstan companies and individuals got on the U.S. Department of Commerce blacklist, RIA Novosti reports.
According to the document published on the Department's website, this list includes companies related to the assets arrested in suspicion of espionage of ex-Soviet citizens. It has 119 legal entities and individuals from Russia.
According to the agency, when a company or an individual gets on the so-called "list of companies", it means that they have to obtain licenses to export certain goods from the United States. The Department says that such licenses will most probably be never issued to these persons and companies.
The list also includes 13 legal entities from Canada, 11 from Finland, 7 from Great Britain and 5 from Germany. Besides, the list also contains companies and individuals from Cyprus, Greece, Kazakhstan, Sweden, Hong Kong and Estonia. The list totals at 165 individuals and legal entities.
