This quarter saw the announcement of sweeping new sanctions against Russia’s billionaire class and their corporate holdings, and included the Trump Administration’s first issuance of sanctions against Russia for meddling in the 2016 US presidential elections and other malign cyber activity.   These measures accompanied a general uptick in designations with respect to targets in North Korea, Venezuela, and Iran.  Notably, OFAC announced no enforcement actions in the first three months of the year.
