LONDON -Britain added three firms to its Russia-related sanctions list on Thursday: Photon Pro LLP, Majory LLP, Djeco Group LP.
The companies, registered with a British address, would be subject to an asset freeze according to a finance ministry notice.
The three firms were also subject to U.S. sanctions.
Britain did not immediately provide a detailed reason explaining the decision. A U.S. Treasury press release said Majory LLP and Photon Pro LLP were “front companies” used to facilitate procurement of key equipment for the Russian government.
