    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - The United States has lifted sanctions against Tempbank board member Arkadiy Vainshtein, the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) said in a statement on Tuesday.

    "The following deletions have been made to OFAC's SDN List: VAINSHTEIN, Arkadiy," the statement said.

    The US included the Moscow-based Tempbank in its Syria-related sanctions list in May 2014, claiming that it had been involved in cash transfers with the Syrian Central Bank.
