US sanctions more, including Russian firms, over North Korea’s arms program

WASHINGTON, June 1 (Reuters) – The United States on Thursday blacklisted nine companies and government institutions, including two Russian firms, and three people for their support of North Korea’s weapons programs.

The announcement from the U.S. Treasury came as diplomats said the United States and China were likely to propose on Thursday that the U.N. Security Council blacklist more North Korean individuals and entities over the country’s repeated ballistic missile launches.
