The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury sent a clear message after expanding the sanctions list yesterday with seven companies and two individuals associated with the Dodik family.

In a short statement, Matthew Miller, Department Spokesperson, stated that the United States condemns the persistent efforts of Republika Srpska President Milorad Dodik to erode the regional peace frameworks that have brought stability and security to Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH).

“U.S.-designated Milorad Dodik has used his official position to accumulate personal wealth through companies linked to himself and to his son, Igor Dodik. For instance, in 2024, Igor and Milorad exercised their control over senior BiH government officials to manipulate the draft BiH state budget so that a state-level contract could be awarded to an entity in Dodik’s network, outside of the competitive process.

Dodik continues to be a destabilizing actor in the region. His recent proposal of a Republika Srpska “disassociation” from BiH continues his blatantly anti-Dayton Peace Agreement activity and threatens the peace and stability of the region. By attacking BiH’s constitutional framework, Dodik threatens the country’s future in Euro-Atlantic institutions”, Miller stated and added:

“The United States will use all tools at our disposal against those who facilitate Dodik’s corruption and enable him to exploit the people of the Republika Srpska for his own benefit.”
