Background

On March 6, 2014, the President, invoking the authority of, inter alia, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706) (IEEPA), issued Executive Order (E.O.) 13660, “Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Ukraine” (79 FR 13493, March 10, 2014). In E.O. 13660, the President determined that the actions and policies of persons including persons who have asserted governmental authority in the Crimean region without the authorization of the Government of Ukraine that undermine democratic processes and institutions in Ukraine; threaten its peace, security, stability, sovereignty, and territorial integrity; and contribute to the misappropriation of its assets, constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and declared a national emergency to deal with that threat.

The President subsequently issued E.O. 13661 of March 16, 2014, “Blocking Property of Additional Persons Contributing to the Situation in Ukraine” (79 FR 15535, March 19, 2014), and E.O. 13662 of March 20, 2014, “Blocking Property of Additional Persons Contributing to the Situation in Ukraine” (79 FR 16169, March 20, 2014), pursuant to the national emergency declared in E.O. 13660. E.O. 13661 and E.O. 13662 expanded the scope of the national emergency declared in E.O. 13660. On May 8, 2014, OFAC published the Ukraine Related Sanctions Regulations, 31 CFR part 589 (the “Regulations”), to implement E.O. 13660, E.O. 13661, and E.O. 13662 (79 FR 26365, May 8, 2014). The President has issued additional Executive orders pursuant to the national emergency declared in E.O. 13660, and expanded in E.O. 13661 and E.O. 13662, which are not discussed in this publication as they are not relevant to the web GLs being published.

OFAC, in consultation with the Department of State, issued GL 13 on April 6, 2018, pursuant to the Regulations, to authorize certain transactions and activities with specific blocked entities that were otherwise prohibited by the Regulations. Subject to certain conditions, GL 13 authorized activities and transactions that were ordinarily incident and necessary to divest or transfer debt, equity, or other holdings in the entities to a non-U.S. person, or facilitate the transfer of debt, equity, or other holdings in the entities by a non U.S. person to another non-U.S. person. Subsequently, OFAC issued 16 further iterations of GL 13, which extended and expanded the authorization to include entities in which those entities owned, directly or indirectly, a 50 percent or greater interest, and other issuer holdings, and in later iterations narrowed the scope of the authorization, due to the removal of two entities, EN+ Group PLC and United Company RUSAL PLC, from OFAC's Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List on January 27, 2019.

On May 1, 2018, OFAC issued GL 13A which replaced and superseded GL 13; on May 31, 2018, OFAC issued GL 13B, which replaced and superseded GL 13A; on July 31, 2018, OFAC issued GL 13C, which replaced and superseded GL 13B; on September 21, 2018, OFAC issued GL 13D, which replaced and superseded GL 13C; on October 12, 2018, OFAC issued GL 13E, which replaced and superseded GL 13D; on October 19, 2018, OFAC issued GL 13F, which replaced and superseded GL 13E; on November 9, 2018, OFAC issued GL 13G, which replaced and superseded GL 13F; on December 7, 2018, OFAC issued GL 13H, which replaced and superseded GL 13G; on December 20, 2018, OFAC issued GL 13I, which replaced and superseded GL 13H; on January 16, 2019, OFAC issued GL 13J, which replaced and superseded GL 13I; on March 6, 2019, OFAC issued GL 13K, which replaced and superseded GL 13J; on June 26, 2019, OFAC issued GL 13L, which replaced and superseded GL 13K; on November 1, 2019, OFAC issued GL 13M, which replaced and superseded GL 13L; on March 20, 2020, OFAC issued GL 13N, which replaced and superseded GL 13M; on July 16, 2020, OFAC issued GL 13O, which replaced and superseded GL 13N; and on December 23, 2020, OFAC issued GL 13P, which replaced and superseded GL 13O. GL 13P expires on January 26, 2022. The texts of the following 17 GLs are provided below: GLs 13, 13A, 13B, 13C, 13D, 13E, 13F, 13G, 13H, 13I, 13J, 13K, 13L, 13M, 13N, 13O, and 13P.
