Tillerson: steps to adopt new sanctions against the Russian Federation have already been taken

62
Work on the implementation of the law "On Countering America's Opponents through Sanctions" is underway, and concrete steps have already been taken in this direction, reports RIA News Statement by Secretary Rex Tillerson.




To the question of the CBS correspondent why the presidential administration does not fully apply the sanctions provided for by the decision of Congress, Tillerson replied that some concrete steps had already been taken: in particular, "based on the existing legislation, several transactions were sold to sell Russian military equipment."

We are considering a number of other persons against whom sanctions may be imposed,
added state secretary.

Recall that in January, the US Treasury Department unveiled the so-called “Kremlin list”, which includes almost all of the Russian leadership and major Russian entrepreneurs - a total of 210 people. The list was prepared in accordance with the Law on Countering America’s Opponents through Sanctions (CAATSA), adopted last summer. As previously explained in the White House, it does not entail automatic sanctions against the persons mentioned, however, it implies that such measures may be introduced in the future.

Last week, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said that the agency is actively working on preparing sanctions against oligarchs and representatives of the leadership of the Russian Federation.

    I wonder when they personally impose sanctions against GDP? It should be after the election.

            Here the matter is different, it is clear that under Putin, happiness will not come. He showed this with all possible methods for 18 years.

            Plus, they all hit the head that it’s better to live shitty, but under Putin, than it’s not clear how, but pi friend.

            They scare the 90s, scare the United States and the West so that they live steadily shitty and be afraid of the future without Putin, who did everything possible to kill competitors for himself inside the country and survives due to scarecrows and due to the lack of the option to choose someone else.

                I wrote about this above - Putin destroyed the opposition and any alternative to himself.

                Outside, the people are intimidated by the United States and the West; inside, any alternative to Putin has been destroyed by subjugating the media, the judiciary and law enforcement agencies.

                What is the name of this state in the country and the name of the head of such a country, I think, and so it is clear.

                That's for sure! Putin is a supporter of stability (not stagnation). He provided recovery and a well-fed life after the 90s. The people forgot about the real difficulties and aching over trifles. How can one not recall Nietzsche about the fact that people are made happy not by circumstances, not by the conditions in which he is, but by their own thoughts. There is, of course, a materialistic option: first, to take away everything from a person, and then, when he has no hope, to return part of what was lost. But this option is only valid for a short time.

          There can be no talk of war, but the United States, without declaring war, spread rot and humiliates Russia as it wants. But the GDP and others show complete lack of will, as the saying goes for the state, it’s insulting, and as I look, such a policy is completely satisfied with wiping your face every time. Nevertheless, we do not have a banana republic, but a country with great historical pages and we must act accordingly.

          Zyablintsev! You all understand perfectly well if you get to the keys you need and others like them. First you need to worry about the withdrawal of capital from the United States, to minimize dependence on imports and exports from the United States. In the territories of independent states, behave with the United States as an aggressor country, using available means and causing maximum damage. Syria - in the first place. And why are you so worried about the war as Trump is for the DPRK? Is there someone to fight with Russia? Not sure they dare. If it is necessary to introduce martial law - let him introduce it. Stop wiping away tears and snot. We do not care where Putin’s rating will be, if he took up his tug, then let him hit first. And then he tells us fairy tales about the "how brisk guy he was."

          Well, yes, according to the actions of the central bank of the Russian Federation with an increase in the refinancing rate, is this a tricky plan? But I do not understand people who believe that the Russian economy is growing. Judging by the actions of Nabiullin, the economy is sinking to the bottom ever faster. I’m not afraid, I have been keeping all the money in dollars for a long time, it’s more reliable. And the introduction of new banknotes and 3,9 trillion unsecured rubles only confirms that Western economists are largely right about the Russian economy, that is, a complete collapse of the economy in 1-2 years. Why rejoice then?

        I mean, that doesn’t work with Putin’s entourage and the oligarchs, they’ll take care of lists for lower ranks, etc. But before trying to stir up the people in Russia. Based on the opinions of traitors and dissidents, the US does not constantly guess with sanctions. And the effect of surprise has long been lost. All their de facto efforts are pure populism.

      For the economic development of the country due to the domestic market, the population should be more than 200 million. We do not even have the Eurasian Economic Community (Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Armenia). And the purchasing power of these states is very low.

    We should not discuss sanctions at all. It has long been clear that they are always on. It’s that Russia is not capable of responding to the US sanctions. Our pussy is thin. We can only get violently indignant.

      And how to answer? Do not buy American products yourself.

      Start now to ban all sorts of Coca-Cola and other McDonald's on the state. level. Do you have any idea how much shit boils in our liberals? In our country, unfortunately, a situation has developed that there are more traitors than enemies outside. All sorts of Rodchenkov, etc. personality; any mold that, having been educated in the USSR, has dumped abroad, and now from there barks at the country, at its history, pours tons of shit; all sorts of comrades who are happy, for example, killing Russians in Syria, are completely happy, and live in Moscow for example (go to Youtube for comments on the video about PMC Wagner, or about downed planes in Syria, about dead pilots), and This is all Russian. For them, the buck in the pocket is most important - honor, dignity, decency. So they sell everything they can, and the country in which they grew as well.

      Not at all. We can build our economy so that we are little dependent on sanctions. Only we need to start working for the country, for its combat readiness and food independence. With trips abroad will have to wait a bit ...

    We had to think about the consequences when they returned to their home harbor. Now in a world where everyone is addicted, guns are not particularly needed. Therefore, now only powerlessness and lack of will ... for there is a dead end.

    I think that it would be worthwhile to prohibit the work in Russia of audit offices and rating agencies from countries that have imposed sanctions. Through them, information about the state of the economy and enterprises in Russia leaves. And if you consider that these offices work "not free", then the financial response to the sanctions will not be weak.
