LONDON - US sanctions on Russia will target exports of national security related goods including sectors such as specialized oil and gas technology and some electronics and sensors, a senior US State Department official said on Thursday.

Asked whether sanctions would apply directly to Russia's biggest airline Aeroflot, the official said they would not, but could theoretically affect the company if it tried to import any of the goods covered by the sanctions.
