In furtherance of the recent commitments by the United States and United Kingdom to protect humanitarian activity from the unintended impacts of sanctions and in support of the enhanced partnership between the United States Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and His Majesty’s Treasury’s Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation (OFSI), OFAC and OFSI are publishing a joint Humanitarian Assistance and Food Security Fact Sheet to provide additional clarity on U.S. and UK Russia-related sanctions and the relevant authorizations, exceptions, and public guidance.  

OFAC and OFSI continue to work together and with foreign partners to reduce the impacts of Russia’s war on global food supplies and prices, and to address humanitarian concerns associated with sanctions.
