THE FAMILY OF A SANCTIONED UKRAINIAN POLITICIAN WITH CLOSE TIES TO RUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN SELLING REFINED OIL PRODUCTS TO US THROUGH AN INTERMEDIARY

On 5 September, Rferl reported this as another example of Russian-linked persons finding legal ways around Washington’s financial restrictions.  The article says that a refinery, which is owned by the wife of Viktor Medvedchuk, who heads a political council of a pro-Russia political party in Ukraine, has been selling some of its output this year to an arm of ExxonMobil via a Swiss-registered trader.  The products are shipped by tanker from the Black Sea to Houston.
