President Clinton signed an executive order that penalizes seven Russian companies and institutions accused of selling missile technology to Iran. The move, which was coordinated with Russia, bars the seven enterprises from exporting goods to the United States and also prevents them from receiving U.S. aid. The Clinton administration is considering imposing the same penalties against two other Russian firms.
