Text size Aa Aa

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Treasury Department said on Thursday it has extended the deadline for investors to divest holdings in companies covered by Russian sanctions, including EN+, Gaz Group and Rusal to Aug. 5, from June 6.

The U.S. Treasury in April imposed sanctions against billionaire Oleg Deripaska and the eight companies in which he is a large shareholder, including giant aluminium exporter Rusal, in response to what it called “malign activities” by Russia.

Deripaska controls 66 percent of En+, which in turn controls 48 percent of Rusal.
