US senators demanded to expand sanctions against Russia

The United States should expand sanctions against Russia under the Magnitsky Act. Democratic Senators Bob Menendez and Ben Cardin addressed the US Treasury with a corresponding demand, according to the Foreign Affairs Committee of the upper house of Congress.


Senators sent a letter to the Ministry of Finance, in which they called for the expansion of sanctions under the "Magnitsky Act". The senators were "seriously concerned" by the overdue "new designations required by the program of sanctions against Russia." According to them, it was assumed that new sanctions against Russia should be introduced by the end of each year, but this was not done by the end of 2019.

We write to express our serious concern that the new designations required by the Magnitsky Act sanctions program against Russia are long overdue. To this end, we urge the immediate release of a carefully crafted and credible list

- the senators demanded, adding that the sanctions program is "one of the most effective mechanisms that the United States has in order to bring to justice violators of human rights in Russia."

Recall that sanctions under the "Magnitsky Act" have been introduced since 2012 against Russians who are considered in the United States to be involved in human rights violations. Currently, this law in the United States has taken on a global meaning and is applied against all countries where there are human rights violations according to the United States.

        It is not necessary to arrange a public zilch.
        They don't care about Russia! For them, the world ends at the borders of their constituency, electoral.

    Well done Americans.
    They force Russia to create an alternative to the Western system of relations in politics and economics.
    The goal is set.
    Will be achieved.

        This process is not one-time and did not stop.
        For example, they learned how to make ship turbines and whatnot.
        Why depend on the Angloskax, Kraints and similar riffraffs.
        Even in the systems of international finance, alternatives are being created.
        Everything is new, it is well forgotten old.
        This took place in the era of the USSR.
        Now reborn, taking into account past mistakes.

            No.
            For example, international settlements begin without the participation of the dollar and the euro.
            There are many other positive aspects.
            But no one imposes anything on you.
            Integrate at least personally into the Anglo-Saxon world and more tightly.
            Freedom of choice however.
            Good luck.

    The current senate of the minke reminds me of the Politburo of the Union of the 80s. The old senile people still cannot find a worthy new enemy and new reasons for "sanctions". No creativity and literacy, no new approaches! smile

    Perhaps to break off diplomatic relations with the United States altogether? Why are they needed? To expel the American ambassador from Moscow in disgrace, to recall his own. The logic of relations today requires this.
    For example, when there were no diplomatic relations between Soviet Russia and the United States until 1936, 400 thousand Americans worked at construction sites of the national economy in the USSR, building factories, factories, bridges, roads, etc. And not bad for them and we did it. And how they established relations with the US government, the province went to write: this is not so, this is not that. After the war, the Americans were generally stunned by impunity, and when the USSR collapsed, they simply went berserk. It's time to bring them to their senses, so as not to bring the world to trouble, as was the case with Germany in the 1930-1940s.

    Hike, American senators (and not only senators) are not serious guys, and you can't deal with them. If only he spoke, bombs were thrown at those who did not like them. Better introduce sanctions with the subsequent confiscation of property abroad against those who promoted, voted and signed the law on pension reform in the Russian Federation.

    the sanctions program is "one of the most effective mechanisms the US has to bring to justice violators of human rights in Russia."

    When will our people begin to worry about the rights of the oppressed in the United States? Otherwise, the United States does not smell of respect for rights and freedoms, but we teach the whole world !!

    the sanctions program is "one of the most effective mechanisms the US has to bring to justice violators of human rights in Russia."

    You can answer the American senator on this issue - well, so introduce sanctions against Aeroflot at least in your own territory of the United States, and then we'll see how you sing. They will never impose such sanctions against us, if only because their civilian planes fly through our territory to Asia, and they know that we will immediately block the airspace for them. They cannot do anything with Cuba, which is close by, for sixty years, and they also lift their legs against Russia. Wonderful people, apparently still do not believe that we were never afraid of them, starting with the Jackson-Vanik amendment.

    Anyone who imposes sanctions against Russia does not understand that this will not make Russia worse. On the contrary, they themselves strengthen, raise the beast, from which they themselves will then flee without looking back. Sanctions are not a panacea and do not work, because Russia has a certain resource of self-sufficiency, which means that sanctions are not a catastrophe for it. But apparently they enter it for show, so that it was. From impotence.
