The United States has sanctioned a group of Myanmar businessmen and their company accused of supplying Russian-made weapons to the military regime that seized control of the country in last year's coup.

In a statement, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the latest sanctions took aim at the Myanmar military's ties to Russia and Belarus.
