Gleb Frank, the primary owner and chairman of the board of directors of the Russian Fishery Company (RFC), one of Russia’s largest producers of whitefish, is included on an updated US sanctions list, Russian media Kommersant reported.

Frank is included on the Specially Designated Nationals And Blocked Persons List (SDN) along with his wife, Kseniya Frank, who is the daughter of Gennady Timchenko.

Timchenko, who is the sixth wealthiest person in the world according to Forbes -- with a fortune of $22 billion (€20 billion) -- has fallen under repeated US sanctions.
