MOSCOW, Oct. 16 (Xinhua) -- Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree to impose a number of bans on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) in compliance with the United Nations (UN) Security Council Resolution 2321, Russia's legal document portal published Monday.
Russia imposed sanctions on 11 DPRK individuals and 10 companies involved in Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs, according to the decree.
It banned exports to the DPRK of 80 chemical substances and types of equipment and software that may be used to produce nuclear, chemical or biological weapons.
The decree cut the number of bank accounts of DPRK's diplomatic missions in Russia and banned exports of luxury items, including expensive tapestries, carpets and porcelain kitchenware.
It also recommended the suspension of scientific and technical cooperation that may contribute to nuclear and missile development with individuals and institutions representing the DPRK.
Other measures were also included in the 39-page presidential decree.
On Nov. 30, 2016, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted the Resolution 2321 in response to Pyongyang's fifth nuclear test on Sept. 9.
