US sanctions Russian companies accused of aiding Iranian Revolutionary Guards


WASHINGTON — The Biden administration has accused the Russian government of helping Iran’s blacklisted military unit sell hundreds of millions of dollars worth of oil around the world, as Washington imposed a barrage of sanctions on the companies and the individuals allegedly involved in the smuggling operation.

Wednesday’s action marks a double financial and diplomatic salvo against the two main enemies of the United States, linking the Russian state oil company to the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, the Iranian military unit designated as terrorist group by the United States and other Western countries.
