Aside from the re-imposition of nuclear sanctions against Iran, there were other key developments that also gained attention. These include the sanctions on seven Russian oligarchs and the new sanctions programs in relation to Nicaragua and U.S. election interference. The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has also emphasized the expanded reach of its authorities and sanctions programs to the cryptocurrency landscape and other novel fields.
