Along with Deripaska, the US Treasury sanctioned six other oligarchs and the companies they control, 17 senior Russian Government officials, a Russian arms company and a Russian bank.

The Russian billionaire, who has close ties to President Vladimir Putin, agreed last month to reduce his stake in EN+ Group - the holding company that controls Rusal - to below 50%.

The US has given American customers and suppliers of the company until October 23, to wind down business, a deadline which was extended after the chaos of the initial sanctions announcement. Some banks have already limited the processing of payments for Rusal, it said yesterday.

Rusal also warned that under those circumstances it might not be able to maintain its operating performance at the level required to service and repay its debts and that could result in current creditors accelerating repayment.

At the end of May, Deripaska's firms En+, Rusal and carmaker GAZ were removed from the USA sanctions list while the businessman remained subject to the measures. The mass exodus is part of a bid to alleviate sanctions imposed on the company by the US Treasury.
