State Department denies that new anti-Russian sanctions are timed to the presidential elections

The expansion of anti-Russian sanctions is not related to the presidential elections of the Russian Federation, reports RIA News State Department spokesman Heather Nauert.


State Department denies that new anti-Russian sanctions are timed to the presidential elections


At the briefing, Nauert was asked to comment on the statement by the Russian Foreign Ministry that the sanctions against a number of natural persons and organizations on Thursday were timed to the election of the Russian president.

This is just nonsense, this is nonsense. Sanctions are imposed for a long time; they are under investigation for a long time. We behind the scenes worked a lot on sanctions,
A spokesperson said.

They (Russians) make a lot of wild assumptions, and this is one of them,
added Nauert.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said yesterday that Washington had introduced new sanctions against Russia, taking into account the upcoming presidential elections to be held on Sunday. According to him, Moscow waited for March 16 sanctions (on the last working day before the elections), but "impatience prevailed in Washington."

The sanctions, in particular, were imposed on businessman Yevgeny Prigogine and the companies included in his Concorde holding, as well as against the FSB and the GRU. These restrictions mean that the assets of those involved in the blacklist will be frozen in the United States, and citizens and permanent residents of the United States will not be allowed to conduct any business with them.

      Almost according to Marshak laughing
      For sanctions there are such reasons:
      Wake, holiday, meeting, farewell,
      Christening, wedding and divorce,
      Frost, hunting, new year,
      Recovery, housewarming,
      Sadness, remorse, fun,
      Success, reward, new rank
      And just sanctions - for no reason! smile

        They have not timed them for a long time. And they are reluctant to explain.
        Sanctions are confined to new sanctions.

        hi
        The US “sanctions” reminds me of the 2016 Chinese warning. Remember that? Although we must pay tribute - according to our moneybags who keep their "pensions" over the hill, these sanctions are well ironed. This is also in (+) Russia (IMHO - like Pushkin’s: "... you wouldn’t chase, pop, for cheapness ...".

      Sanctions, in particular, are imposed against the FSB and the GRU.

      But the FSB and the GRU do not care about mattress sanctions, it will be necessary to come without visas. fellow

          Visas for ICBMs belay it’s for sure without visas, if that, but if that is not desirable.

            So the GRU acts without any permissions (if necessary). Such a job - to seep into the rear.
            And about the ICBM for sure -

      Well, if the State Department said, you need to believe. There, just like gentlemen in London, they all take each other's word. Sometimes they get scorched, but this is just an accident.

    The USA imposes wild sanctions against us. Can we also encircle them on the Atlantic and Pacific side with Status-6 and reliably isolate so?

    "It's just nonsense, it's nonsense. Sanctions are being introduced for a long time, a long investigation is underway. We worked a lot on sanctions behind the scenes."

    What are the choices? Sanctions for Russia firmly oppressing the indigenous Yakuts in the Rostov mountains! [Quote] [/ quote]

    A mistake came out, hurried up: the EU announced new sanctions against Syria for an as yet incomplete chemical attack The EU Council released on Thursday a statement imposing new sanctions against Syria for chemical attacks against civilians, dated March 19, when a meeting of community foreign ministers will be held in Brussels. The press service of the Council of the EU has already called this statement published by mistake and removed from the official website.



    The publication was designed in full compliance with local regulations for the preparation of such texts. It spoke of the inclusion of four people on the list of persons falling under restrictive measures against the Syrian government for creating chemical weapons and using them against civilians.

    Some time after publication, it was deleted from the site. When asked by TASS about the reasons for this, the representative of the press service of the Council of the EU replied: "This is a technical error."

    Collapse



    The text of the document, which is currently not available online, did not disclose the identities of Syrian officials who would be subject to sanctions, but only noted that three of them are scientists and one military.


    The fact of publication of a decision prepared in advance by the foreign ministers for Syria is not something exceptional, hundreds of documents pass through the EU Council every day, and such malfunctions in its work sometimes occur.



    The EU blacklist for Syria includes 261 individuals and 67 companies.

    Yes you? What kind of election ????
    Elections can only be by command from Washington, but without a team it’s kind of like not an election ...
    And sanctions, one must somehow be friends with neighbors, here, as they can, they are friends.

    The Russians have a higher intelligence coefficient than these unicellular ghouls by several orders of magnitude, and so they associate the obvious with the only possible.
