What appears to be a new North Korean intercontinental ballistic missile is seen during a military parade in Pyongyang in October 2020.

The United States imposed sanctions against two Russian individuals and three entities over their support for North Korea's missile program.

The sanctions were announced after North Korea tested parts of its biggest intercontinental ballistic missile in two recent launches.

The U.S. Treasury Department named the Russians as Aleksandr Andreyevich Gayevoy and Aleksandr Aleksandrovich Chasovnikov. It named the Russian firms as Apollon, Zeel–M Co., Ltd, and RK Briz.

"The D.P.R.K. continues to launch ballistic missiles in blatant violation of international law, posing a grave threat to global security,” U.S. Treasury Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Brian Nelson said in a statement , referring to North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

"Today’s actions respond to this threat by targeting a network of Russia-based individuals and entities complicit in helping the D.P.R.K. procure components for its unlawful ballistic missile systems,” he added.
