The US imposed sanctions against the Malta Aviation Company

Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the U.S. Department of State sanctioned aircraft management company Emperor Aviation and eight of its aircraft earlier this month. The sanctions are part of a broader crackdown on Russia’s global supply chain and Kremlin-linked networks and individuals.

Emperor, based in Malta and Russia, was sanctioned for coordinating luxury trips for Suleiman Abusaidovich Kerimov’s closest relatives, including his daughter, after Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine. Kerimov was sanctioned in September “for being or having been a head, official, senior official or member of the board of directors of the government of the Russian Federation.”

In addition, OFAC designated eight aircraft in which Imperial has an interest as blocked property. The eight aircraft are three Bombardier Global Expresses and a Global 5000; Cessna Citation XLS+; two Gulfstream G650s; and the Bombardier Challenger.
