In particular, the Executive Order bans until further notice the export from Russia to Libya, as well as the sale, supply or transfer to Libya outside Russia of arms and related materiel of all types, including weapons and ammunition, military vehicles and equipment, paramilitary equipment and related materials, as well as spare parts for the aforementioned.

According to the Executive Order, inspections are to be conducted in Russia, including in seaports and airports, of all cargoes being transported to Libya and coming in from Libya, if information is made available that gives grounds to suspect that the cargo contains banned products.
